Research Overview

PhD in stratgraphy on an interval of the Namurian Carboniferous in the UK.  Completed a post-doc working with Sakhalin Energy Investment Company (SEIC)/ and the STRATGroup at the University of Liverpool.

I then spent 18 years working for Shell International Production and Development B.V. (The Hague/ Houston), Shell UK (Aberdeen), Fairfield Energy, Premier Oil and Statoil/ Equinor.  I have worked in a number of roles including exploration, development, operations, petrophysics, geological modelling, buisness development, project manangement.

I joined the University of Aberdeen Sand Injectite Research Group (SIRG) in Feb 2021.

I have interest in data integration and analysis across the sub-surface disciplines - from pore to basin scale.
