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 has implications for regional-scale basin evolution, overburden accumulation in petroleum systems and high-resolution (spatial and temporal) interpretations of depositional environments and paleogeography of areas of study (e.g., Eagle Ford Shale, Wolfcamp, Utica, etc.).

Additional Interests: Carbonate Sedimentology, Provenance of mixed carbonate/siliciclastic systems
