Graduate Students

Joshua Malone , Ph.D., expected 2026 (Co-supervisor)
I am a field-based sedimentologist and geochronologist who uses sedimentary basin records to understand drivers and consequences of changes in tectonism and climate along convergent margins. My PhD research focuses on the key processes controlling unconventional reservoir development within mixed carbonate and siliciclastic systems in southern California.

Taufik Al Amin , M.S., expected 2025 (Supervisor)
I'll be working at Reservoir Characterization Research Laboratory (RCRL) in the Bureau of Economic Geology, Jackson School of Geosciences, probably, related to the application of structural geology and reservoir geomechanics in optimizing fracture drainage in subsurface geological reservoirs. My main specialization includes advanced structural geology analysis, seismic interpretation, reservoir characterization, pore pressure & reservoir geomechanics, borehole image log interpretation, and...
