Paul (Mitch) Harris

Ph.D. Marine Geology, University of Miami, 1977

M.S. Degree, West Virginia University

B.S. Degree, West Virginia University

 

Current research interests: (1) carbonate sand deposits in the Bahamas as templates for undersanding reservoir heterogeneity; (2) microbial-dominated carbonate platform margins, especially Late Paleozoic examples; and (3) isolated platform type carbonate reservoirs.

Sara Bashah

PhD student since August 2015 (Advisor: Gregor P. Eberli)

Research interests: Carbonate system of Central Luconia, Malaysia.

Vivana_Diaz_2_CSL

Viviana Diaz

PhD Student since 2011 (Supervisor Prof. James Klaus and Donald F. McNeill)

Research interests: Evolution of Plio-Pleistocene fringing reefs in the southern Dominican Republic. The goal is to develop an integrated sequence stratigraphic model that characterizes both depositional and diagenetic trends and the large-scale porosity and permeability distributions that result with repeated cycles of freshwater and marine diagenesis from regional uplift and high-amplitude changes in sea level.

Kimberly C. Galvez

PhD Student since 2014 (Supervisor Prof. Gregor Eberli) 

Research interests: Observe and assess the development of cold-water corals in the Straits of Florida through means of determining age of the current and fossilized CWC systems using radiometric dating technology and assessing the formation of the carbonate mounds sedimentological facies deposition over time. Determining age and species variability of these corals and their environments may provide insights into geological and biological formations in that region.
