Jhon Meyer Munoz Muñoz-Barrera

PhD Candidate, I am interested in understanding how the tridimensional-geometry of the geological structures and how tectonic and non-tectonic factors control the siliciclastic sediments' location and architecture during deformation.

My research interest is to understand how the tectonic and non-tectonic factors control the sediment distribution during the rift episodes. Currently, I am working in the  Frøya High, mid-Norwegian Continental Shelf evaluating the effects of the late Jurassic syn-rift episode.
