As Exploration Geologist I am discovering and evaluating new hydrocarbon prospects. Part of my job is mapping and risking the possible new oil and gas fields and adding them to the company's portfolio. High oil price? A good thing about the high oil price - people are finally thinking about saving energy and money. For the oil companies a lower oil price would be more attractive, because the high oil prices drive the exploration costs into the sky. In order to reduce my carbon footprint, I am taking my bike and the bus every morning to get to work.
Structural Geologist, 3D Modeler, Seismic Interpreter
As structural geologist I am specializing in the tectonic evolution of fold-and-thrust belts like the Alps and the Andes. Goal of my studies are fault-related folding mechanisms indicated by syntectonic growth strata and 2D cross-section balancing and 3D restoration.
Contaminated Land Consultant, Enironmental Engineer
As environmental engineer I worked many years in industry. I was planing, supervising and evaluating remediation of waste sites.
