Postdoctoral Researcher

University College Dublin

Career Summary

I received my BS from Auburn University in 2005, and my MS from the University of Kansas in 2012. From 2008-2013 I was a geologist in the petroleum industry, exploring and developing oil and gas fields in east Texas. In 2013, I voluntarily left the private sector to return to academia. I received my PhD in 2016 from the Australian School of Petroleum, after spending the three years working on salt-influenced marine deltaic deposits in the Adelaide Rift Complex. I began my first postdoctoral fellowship in France in 2017, looking at the geomorphology and seismic stratigraphy of sediment gravity flows on the slopes of isolated carbonate platforms. In September 2018 I began a project at University College Dublin reviewing sand connectivity in turbidite systems with the goal of assessing stratigraphic traps in subsurface deposits.
