Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests involve: basin and petroleum system modeling (BPSM), rock physics, quantitative seismic interpretation (QSI), pore pressure prediction and salt tectonics. My previous research for my MSc degree was about linking BPSM with seismic attributes through rock physics using a data set in the Ship Shoal and South Timbalier areas in the Gulf of Mexico. My current research focuses on using QSI and rock physics modeling with BPSM to try predicting pore pressure more accurately by accounting for more potential mechanisms that elevate pore pressure. Another important topic involved in my current research is looking at both pore pressure and the salt evolution and using BPSM to understand the impact of these two factors on the development of the petroleum system in the ThunderHorse area in the Gulf of Mexico.
