The Geo-Energy / Reservoir Geology and Basin Analysis Research Group at the moment consists of 8 PhD students and 4 Post Docs , 1 Lab. Manager/Technical Research Assistant and 10 MSc
The research programs carried out within the GE-RGBA group are mostly associated with PhD and Post Doc projects.
The PhD students in the GE-RGBA group are:
Nicolas Clerc: Tectonic evolution and structural style and of deep geothermal plays in the Greater Geneva Basin.
Elma Rusillon: Rock typing and reservoir charcaterisation of deep geothermal plays in the Greater Geneva Basin.
Gabriel Hunger: Unravelling tectonic and climate forcing in the accumulation of a thick foreland continental Miocene succession in Central Argentina.
Aymeric Le Cotonnec: reservoir architecture and reservoir modelling of coal-bearing flvio-deltaic deposits from the Carboniferous of Eastern Kentucky (USA)
Maud Brentini: regional geological information aimed at exploring geothermal reservoirs in the Geneva Basin: knowledge capture and organization.
Mahmoud Leila: onshore Nile Delta Messinian stratigraphy and sedimentary record and seismic signature
Francisco J. Bataller: Ordovician Glacial paloegeography in the Murzuq Basin (Libya): Seismic spectral decomposition, chemostratigraphy and petrophysics.
Sam Carmalt: mineralogy, organic and inorganic geochemistry of Marcellus Shales, Pennsylvania
4 Post Docs are part of the GE-RGBA group:
Dr. Luca Guglielmetti: geothermal energy, hydrogeology, geophysics and water geochemistry
Dr. Dario Ventra: clastic sedimentology, continental sequences
Dr. Silvia Omodeo Sale’: petroleum system modelling, stratigraphy, organic matter and geochemistry
Dr. Ovie Emmanuel Eruteya: seismic interpretation, fluid flow, petrophysics
The Lab. Manager / Technical Research Assistant is Dr. Antoine de Haller, who brings a large academic and industry experience in mineralogy and petrography. Antoine is responsible for optical microscopy and the QEMSCAN lab.
