About me:

My research interests are mainly focused on sedimentary basins and petroleum geology. I am particularly interested about basin filling, depositional environments, petroleum systems and petroleum prospecting. Recently, I have been developing an interest in renewable energy.

I am currently putting together a proposal for my Ph.D. dissertation that would involve a sedimentological, stratigraphic and tectonic synthesis of the Barents Sea and its influence on hydrocarbon development there. I acquired my formal graduate-level training in geology working on the Norwegian Barents Shelf, including graduate-level coursework at the University Centre in Svalbard and working knowledge of Petrel software. During my undergraduate, I was involved mainly with mineral exploration and ore prospecting in remote areas of the state of Bahia, Brazil.

I was fortunate enough to experience three distinct academic systems in addition to formal work in both the mining and hydrocarbon industries. As a consequence, I have been exposed to a myriad of geological problems and work scenarios, obtaining a wide-skill portfolio as well as experience in multi-cultural and stressful scenarios. 


In my spare time, I like photography. When I can, I also enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures and food. I have been to more than 35 countries and counting!
