Research

Research Interests

Petroleum Geology

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
  • Micropaleontology
  • Hydrogeology

 

Current Research

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).

Collaborations

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

Teaching Responsibilities

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.

Further Info

External Responsibilities

More than one year of accumulated fieldwork (mapping, sketching and logging) in areas with exposures of palaeo-submarine channels and palaeo-mass transport deposits (Turkey, Mexico and French Alps).
