Geoscience Intern (Subsurface Technology Biostratigrapher)
Comprehensively studied three well sections from the deep-water Gulf of Mexico (USA) with emphasis on the “lower Tertiary” trend. The study included age dating, paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental reconstructions, and chemostratigraphic analysis. Results were tied to known major sequence stratigraphic events and used to layout the foundation of a palynological chronostratigraphic framework for the area. A depositional model for the area was also suggested

Research Associate
- Conducted a detailed study on the palynology of the Gray Fossil Site, Tennessee. Results included palynomorphs identification, reconstruction of past vegetational history, age dating, source rock evaluation, organic thermal maturation, and basin fill history - Studied the palynology of the Pipe Creek sinkhole, Indiana (including palynomorphs identification and age dating) - Trained a faculty and some students on sample preparation techniques for palynological studies - Joined some field trips to collect fossils and study the geology of different areas within the state of Tennessee
