Overview

Interests

  • Marine Geology and Geophysics
  • Basin analysis and Petroleum Geology
  • Sequence stratigraphy & structural interpretation of sedimentary basins
  • Integrated seismic and structural interpretation of reactivated faults in sedimentary basins
  • Seismic data processing
  • Seismic Exploration
  • Rock physics and Petro-physics

I am an Exploration Geophysicist with field experience. Integrated seismic and structural interpretation of reactivated faults in sedimentary basins, Near surface investigation for groundwater and geotechnical are key themes of my research. I use a range of datasets to understand how fault reactivates and grows in sedimentary basins. I undertake project on Integrated seismic and structural interpretation of reactivated faults in sedimentary basinsand. Key study areas include (but are not restricted to): Niger Delta, SE Brazil, Southern North Sea, SE Japan.
