Research Summary:

I focus on modeling Earth’s interior using seismic tomography, i.e. I use seismic data and numerical methods to image the structure of the Earth’s interior, with the ultimate goal of understanding the physical processes that take place inside our planet. I also put a particular effort into obtaining reliable model uncertainties and assessing the robustness of the features seen in those models.

Research Summary:

My current research focuses on the characterization of Upper Cambrian microbial reefs of Mason County, central Texas exposed along certain bodies of water. This project is part of a Microbial Research Consortium consisting of Rice and Trinity University with funding and interaction from Stat Oil, Shell, Exxon, and Conoco Phillips. This research consists of reservoir analysis of the microbial reef complex acting as an analog to large offshore discoveries of pre-salt hydrocarbon deposits of Angola and Brazil.
My specific field area focuses on a very large outcrop on the James River, located on a recently accessible private ranch. The outcrop consists of a laterally extensive pavement of juxtaposed bioherms adjacent to a cliff face revealing bioherm relationships with the inter-reef strata. Using a suite of analytical techniques, we hope to understand the relationship between microbial buildups and their depositional environment, with specific focuses on buildup geometries, microbial macro- and microtextures developed, and the relationship between the buildups and the coeval inter buildup sedimentation.

Research Summary:

The W coast of the Iberian Peninsula is a classic magma-poor rifted margin, where slow crustal hyperextension allowed rising mantle to cool/harden instead of melting. A long, margin-parallel Peridotite Ridge (PR) separates the final prerift material from this trans. zone of exhumed mantle. The PR has been dredged, drilled, and imaged in 2D for over 40 years, but new 3D seismic finally reveals its inner structure and evolution.
