My research focuses on using sedimentology, ichnology, and genetic stratigraphy to interpret sedimentary rock successions in both subsurface and outcrop contexts. My research projects are typically multidisciplinary and commonly focus on problems involving the interface between geological and biological systems. This broad field has strong links to the hydrocarbon industry, is used extensively in the development of refined facies models. Recently, most of my research has focused on the construction of high-resolution sequence stratigraphic frameworks for the Central Iran and Alborz basin successions in order to understand the interplay of relationships between tectonic and sedimentation
