Personal profile


PhD University of Bordeaux (Fr), December 2009 (Marine sedimentology)
MSc University of Bordeaux (Fr), 2006 (Oceanography, Environment, Sedimentology, Paleo-oceanography)
BSc University of Lyon (Fr), 2004 (Geology, Paleontology, Sedimentology)

Roles and responsibilities

Coordinator of the Master of Petroleum Geoscience (MSc)

Assistant Director, Centre for Energy Geoscience, UWA

Future research

I have openings for Masters and/or Ph.D. students to study sedimentary basin evolution, sedimentary processes and sequence stratigraphy in marginal to deep-marine environments. Potential PhD projects may be related to the current projects listed above, however, I can also accommodate additional projects in other areas.
Most of the projects will be based on strong linkages with the petroleum industry, and may include co-supervision by experts from other disciplines such as structural geology, biostratigraphy, or 3D modelling.

If you are interested in working with me, please send me an email with your C.V. & transcripts as an attachment.

Funding opportunities for highly qualified students are available.

Previous positions

Post-doctoral fellow, Australian School of Petroleum, The University of Adelaide (February 2010 - May 2011).

Teaching overview

Unit Coordinator:

GEOS4412 (Petroleum Systems) & GEOS5503 (Petroleum Resources).

These units aim to develop skills relevant to petroleum exploration and production. These units are especially valuable to students actively seeking employment in the energy sector after graduation.

I teach Sequence Stratigraphy and 2D/3D Seismic Stratigraphy courses in these units.

Other teaching:

EART1104 - Introduction to Geology (year 1). Teaching: Principles of Sedimentary Geology, Igneous and metamorphic petrology (labs), Geological mapping (labs), field work:

EART3337 Coastal Environments (year 3). Teaching: Coastal and shallow-marine Sedimentology. http://units.handbooks.uwa.edu.au/units/eart/eart3337

SCIE3304 Field Techniques in Marine Science (year 3). Boat-based Sedimentology Course.


Expertise in sedimentology, sequence and seismic stratigraphy, basin analysis, 3D seismic stratigraphy and seismic geomorphology.

My research interests include:

- 3D seismic geomorphology

- Tectono-stratigraphic evolution of the Australia's North West Shelf

- Cenozoic carbonate margins and slopes of the North West Shelf

- Characterization of siliciclastic shallow marine reservoirs using integrated datasets, depositional analogues

- Stratigraphic architecture of continental slope and basin deposits, platform-basin linkages
