Laya, Juan Carlos Associate Professor


My current research interests are in the broad area of carbonate sedimentology and stratigraphy. The topics I am focusing on include:

1) Carbonate reservoir characterization and modeling from modern and outcrop analogues, (interested in Caribbean islands, also Pacific and Indian Ocean islands)

2) Late Paleozoic carbonate petroleum systems and opportunities for exploration

3) Diagenesis and porosity evolution, using image analysis tools as a key for petrophysics.

4) The use of stable isotope geochemistry including clumped isotopes in understanding deposition, diagenesis and basin evolution.

5) Unconventional Carbonate reservoirs and basin analysis.
