Areas of experience (both in the industry and research projects):
- Petroleum exploration
- Mining exploration
Sedimentary systems in marine Environments: with particular interest in submarine channel systems (e.g. canyons, leveed-channels, lobes, fans, MTDs).
Other research areas of interest
- Tectonics & Structural Geology
- Volcanic Processes
Reconstruction of the sedimentary architecture of ancient deepwater systems in the Maras Basin (Kahramanmaras, Turkey).
Collection of data during several field seasons in the last 4 years resulted in the mapping two types of deepwater systems largely controlled by tectonic structures related to fold-and-thrust belts:
1. Stacked series of canyon-fills in a mud-prone slope controlled by the propagation of a fold-and-thrust belt.
2. Mass Transport Complex (MTC) dominated system: with channel-fill sets intercalating mass transport deposits (related to submarine sliding processes promoted by thrusting).

Co-leader in a field-course and workshop for oil companies (southern Turkey) and assistant in four more.
Oil companies assisting to field courses: Statoil, Petrochina, BG Group, BP, Tullow, RWE, Dong, Shell, and others.
Teaching assistant for undergraduate and master students in the next courses: Stratigraphical Principles, Petrology & Mineralogy, Structural Geology & Tectonics, Field Techniques, Petroleum Geology, Introduction to Geology for Petroleum Engineers, Petroleum geology & reservoir characterisation.
Also teaching assistance during fieldtrips for most of these courses.
