    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Geological Sciences

    BioI joined the Department of Geological Sciences as a Ph.D. student in September 2012 and became a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in September 2017. I am currently affiliated with Basin and Petroleum System Modeling Group (BPSM) and a member of several student chapters and organizations on campus.

    I am using integrated multidisciplinary approach for unraveling geohistories and paleoenvironments of sedimentary basins and petroleum systems, focusing on the research questions, rather than the tools used. Most of my projects incorporate field observations, subsurface data interpretation, and laboratory work with numerical data analysis.

    My Ph.D. work in Arctic Alaska was focused on stratigraphic and depositional controls on source rock heterogeneity and composition of expelled petroleum in the Triassic Shublik Formation. My ongoing research has been focusing on oceanic anoxic events (OAEs) and how their paleoenvironmental changes impact sedimentological records in different parts of the globe (Texas, Colorado, Italy). This work aims to quantify lithological and geochemical variability within a given event, link environmental change with molecular fossil record, and compare regional and global controls.
