Room:NQ 193

Ph.D. University of Cincinnati 1989
M.Sc. New Mexico State University 1984
B.Sc. University of Akron 1983

Current Research:
My research interests are focused on petroleum geology (sedimentary petrology, diagenesis and prediction of reservoir quality), basin analysis and sedimentary geochemistry. I work in both outcrop- and core-based projects, integrating different analytical methods (sedimentary petrology/ geochemistry) in different scales to address a variety of geological issues in sedimentary geology.
