Research Interests

Research Interests: Unconventional Resources, Sequence Stratigraphy, Chronostratigraphy


My research integrates litho-, chemo-, bio- and chronostratigraphic proxies to develop robust sequence stratigraphic correlations in unconventional plays on regional scales. future work will employ the development of new methods (geochemical and otherwise) to model interaction between siliciclastic and carbonate sequence stratigraphic systems and to constrain ages of stratal surfaces and isotopic events in the Western Interior. This approach produces high-resolution (spatial and temporal) interpretations of depositional environments and paleogeography of my areas of interest (e.g., Eagle Ford Shale, Utica Shale, etc.).


My current position as a student technician (Geologist) is through the Berg-Hughes Center of Sedimentary and Petroleum Systems at Texas A&M University, where I’m currently working on developing subsurface geologic models for prospect evaluation in the Eagle Ford Shale.
