Chemist / Petroleum Geochemist

 

Scientist with extensive experience in exploration and production oil industry and laboratories. Strong expertise in geochemistry, chemistry, data analytics, laboratory analytic instruments, analytical chemistry, and quality control. Skilled in petroleum geochemistry (rock, oil, gas, and water samples analyses and evaluation), but in-depth background in organic chemistry, data science, laboratory analytic instruments (chromatographic: HPLC, GC, GC-MS, ICP and Flame emission) and traditional analytical chemistry and quality control.

 

Team player, who has developed an advanced environment of collaboration and integration with colleagues whose experience, background, and disciplines are diverse and complex.

 

Problem solver with the ability to bring professional solutions to any science disciplines. Known for the ability to handle huge amount of data and different kinds of database, to manage personnel and complex situations, to avoid confrontations with staff. Good storyteller communicating and preparing presentations and technical and executive reports.
