Earth Science PhD with a broad background in structural geology, tectonic, sedimentology, seismic interpretation, and cartography. Author of several scientific papers and international presentations on the mapping/determination of tectonic and structural evolution of volcanic margins, thermal evolution, characterization of sedimentary basin, and experimental modeling. My experience includes a multidisciplinary approach to study the North Atlantic rifted margins using a range of techniques going from the intrusion scale to basin/crustal scale such as seismic interpretation, ArcGIS mapping, structural geology, tectonics, basin analysis, and petroleum geology.
