I am interested in basin analysis, sedimentary depositional systems, and reservoir geology. The emphasis of my work is obtaining a strong understanding of specific basin scale depositional systems before focusing on reservoir-scale features and heterogeneities.

Summer 2012 Plans
After graduating this spring, I will be working full-time at Anadarko Petroleum Corporation in The Woodlands, TX.

Current Work
I am currently working with Tip Meckel, David Carr, and Ramon Trevino as a Graduate Research Assistant with the GCCC's Offshore Miocene Project. My efforts are focused on Miocene stratigraphy and site selection for CO2 sequestration in the Lavaca Bay region, TX.
