Thomas Teillet, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellows

​Postdoctoral Fellow - Vahrenkamp Group

Research Interest

  • Refine the understanding of modern and ancient carbonate depositional environments, associated diagenesis and physics properties of carbonate rock for improved perception of reservoir heterogeneities on multiple scales.
  • Investigation of geobiological and environmental mechanisms controlling the Formation of micritized Sediment in Modern Shallow Marine Carbonates and assess whether these processes are setting the stage for the development of ubiquitous micro-porosity in ancient limestones
