Research topics:

CSS themes:

  • Characterizing the updip pinchout of slope channel systems: Implications for trapping mechanisms and sediment transfer.

  • Integrating longitudinal facies and architectural variability in submarine channel-fills with observations with modern systems to improve understanding of how channels fill with sand.

Other themes:

  • Grain-type distribution in submarine fans and its implications for reservoir quality, signal shredding, and flow processes.

  • Microplastic transport and sequestration in submarine fans.

  • The influence of basin confinement on depositional processes and the resultant stratigraphic architecture.
