I am a Post-Doc Marine Geology Researcher at the Earth Sciences Department of Memorial University in Newfoundland, Canada. My research interest focuses on marine geology and geophysics, seismic method, sedimentology, depositional modelling, seismic stratigraphic and structural interpretation as well as seismic data processing. In particular, Miocene to Recent Structural and stratigraphic evolution of the Eastern Mediterranean Basin. My current research focus on understanding the Messinian Salinity Crisis (MSC) event with describing temporal and spatial seismic facies variations and stratigraphic and structural modelling of entire Mediterranean Basin during the MSC. In my PICO presentation, thorough acoustic and proxy-sedimentary descriptions of MSC seismic units are provided and depositional frameworks for these successions are delineated. These new findings are allowing us to formulate a new concept for the relationships of the Messinian in the eastern and western Mediterranean.
