Research Interests
I am a dual degree undergraduate working at the GCCC to further my education by involvement in research related to CO2 sequestration. I have a broad interest in learning how chemical analysis is used to make geologic interpretations. Specific disciplines of geology that interest me are: geochemisty, petrology, and petroleum geology.

- Assisting in the estimation of CO2 storage potential of Miocene reservoirs in the Texas state waters of the Gulf of Mexico. My duties include digitization of raster images, management of well information within a Petra database, and basic well log interpretation.

- Integration of data from bulk mass spectrometric analysis of fluid inclusions of core samples taken within the Texas state waters. My current objectives are determining how this information may be useful in determining the fluid migration history of a specific potential storage region. I am also investigation how this information may be used in describing the broader history of CO2 migration through the GOM basin.
