December 13, 2021

Pablo is a geoscientist with B.Sc. (from the University of Vale do Rio dos Sinos) and M.Sc. (from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro) degrees in Geology, and a Ph.D. degree in Geological Sciences from the University of British Columbia. He has worked in Brazil, the United States and Canada. In his early career he worked on subsurface geological mapping using seismic data, and estimation of rock petrophysical properties from core and borehole log measurements. During his Ph.D., Pablo researched the textural, geochemical and petrophysical properties of mudstones in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, as well the reconstruction of thermal maturation history in the basin. He is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow and a sessional lecturer at the University of British Columbia.
