My current research involves analysis of shallow hydrocarbon plumbing systems in active and passive margins, by the use of 3D seismic, petrophysical in geochemical information. The DPhil project was entitled ‘controls on the distribution of gas hydrates in sedimentary basins’
My previous was focused on the petrographic and geochemical analysis of carbonate reservoirs in the UAE to evaluate the impact of fluid flow and diagenesis on reservoir quality.
Research interests: Marine Geology and Geophysics, Petroleum Geology, Reservoir Geomechanics, Petrophysics, Sedimentary Petrography and Diagenesis, Structural Geology and Geodynamics, Basin Analysis.
