I am Geologist and Msc from the Universidad de Caldas (Colombia), and PhD in Sciences – Geotectonic from the Universidade de São Paulo (Brazil). My main interests includes regional geology and tectono-stratigraphy of convergent margins to understand the tectonic controls in the basin-orogen evolution. The geodynamic and paleogeographic reconstructions proposed by me and my colleagues are based on the integration of multiple tools (field geology, stratigraphy, sedimentology, provenance analysis, paleomagnetism, geochemistry, geochronology, and thermochronology). Additionally, I am interested in applying and developing stratigraphy, petrography and provenance analysis of sedimentary rocks for the evaluation and characterization of reservoirs.
Currently, I am researcher at the Instituto de Investigaciones en Estratigrafía-IIES / Research Group in Stratigraphy and Volcanology-GIEV, and researcher in the Study Group in Geology and Geophysics – EGEO, of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia-Medellín.
