About me

Currently I’m working on the FRESCO (fluvial reservoir connectivity and heterogeneity) project. My research aims to understand the influence of external and internal processes in dynamic fluvial systems to improve the connectivity and heterogeneity predictions of sandstone bodies. I analyse the analogue case of a rapidly aggrading  low net-to-gross fluvial system (Bighorn Basin, USA) making use 3D (photogrammetry and stratigraphy) and 1D (petrophysical) data. In combination with process based modelling I can test and validate my theories on the development of the stratigraphy and spatial patterns. With this data I aim to develop new predictive stratigraphic modelling methodology and an optimized workflow for subsurface data for industry application. This study is key to the improvement of short and long distance borehole correlation and the prediction of lateral and vertical position and continuity of sandstone bodies.
