I am a geologist with industry experience, mostly in petroleum exploration. I have been involved in several exploration projects around the world as part of interdisciplinary, geoscientific teams, working in several sedimentary basins of different origins and tectonic-sedimentary evolution. I was responsible for seismic interpretation, structural and tectonic analysis, facies analysis, and play-to-prospect evaluation, including petroleum systems analysis. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student in the Basin and Petroleum Systems Modeling group in the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University. I am interested in faults and fault related folds geometry, kinematics, and evolution of their properties through geological time, using basin modeling tools in combination with recent developments in other related disciplines for geological processes simulation and understanding of their behaviors.
