HESS CORPORATION – Houston, Texas 2017 – 2020
Foundation Geologist

• Oversaw regional to sub-regional structural interpretation and prospect identification which added 4 prospects to the existing exploration portfolio.
• Identified shallow hazards and generated pore pressure and fracture gradient prediction shallow hazard identification resulting in the safe and timely completion of 4 wells in the Guyana basin.
• Built a new geologically representative reservoir model for a reservoir interval at the Shenzi field in the Gulf of Mexico identifying a higher value infill target.
• Participated in the Hess early career development program.
UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON – Houston, Texas 2013 – 2017
Graduate Research Assistant

• Conducted research on the structural and tectonic history of the Virgin Islands Basin, and the South Atlantic conjugate margins utilizing seismic interpretation, gravity modeling, and well log interpretation.
• Served as lead teaching assistant for Basin Analysis, IBA, and Petroleum Geology of the Gulf of Mexico and Latin America courses.
Geology Summer Intern Summer 2016

• Assessed the Albian-Turonian Shelf-edge play in the MSGBC basin generating sub-regional maps, well PDAs, GDE maps, and volumetric calculations.

BP – Houston, Texas Summer 2013
Integrated Geology Intern

• Worked with the Brazil exploration team to create and describe a depositional model for an early Cretaceous carbonate reservoir.
• Performed well log interpretation and correlation used in combination with seismic data.
• Interpreted and correlated well logs combined with seismic interpretation to identify and characterized other carbonate reservoirs considered in future bid rounds.
CATALYST RECOVERY OF LOUISIANA – Lafayette, Louisiana 2011 – 2012
Lab Technician

• Tested spent and unused catalyst used in the oil refining process to ensure adherence to environmental and company enforced standards.
