Professor in geosciences. He received his B.S. degree in geophysics from the Universidad Central de Venezuela in 1995 and his Ph.D. in geosciences from The University of Texas at Austin in 2003. His research focuses on basin evolution of continental margins, the interplay of tectonics and sedimentation, regional- to reservoir-scale analysis, and sequence seismic stratigraphy, interpreting seismic data integrated with well data and geographic information systems for improved subsurface understanding related to production and storage of energy (e.g. gas) and waste (e.g. CO2). Other areas of interest include application of geophysical methods for near surface characterization applied to geotechnical and archeological problems.
