My background on integrated projects including tectonic, sedimentology and diagenesis studies is applied to decipher the evolution of salt-related rift basins and passive margins from a multidisciplinary approach. As a postdoctoral research fellow within the ZechTec project, my research will be focused on regional-scale mapping and analysis of different structural styles, seismic stratigraphy and salt basin dynamics. My research integrates subsurface data, field analogue analysis and numerical simulations to gain understanding of how salt structures and minibasin infill evolved temporally and spatially.
