About

I am a geologist with a strong interest in research related to Basin Analysis. I received my Doctoral degree at the Department of Geodynamics and Sedimentology, University of Vienna, Austria. Currently I am continuing my work at the University of Vienna as a post-doctoral researcher. My focus areas are the Vienna Basin and adjacent basins, and the IODP expedition 356 Indonesian Throughflow (31.7-30.9.2015) in western Australia.

The title of my doctoral thesis is ‘Integrated Basin Analysis of the Vienna Basin, central Europe’. My thesis topic was initiated from a project ‘Karpatian Tectonics Slovakia’ of an oil company, OMV. My doctoral research has enhanced my understanding of interplay of sedimentation and tectonics in various setting, and has given me technical training and additional experiences in interpreting and modelling 2D/3D seismic reflection, well, and logging data. I also gained excellent insights to understand quantitative modelling, visualization and software. From my doctoral project, three scientific articles will be published in international peer-reviewed scientific journals.

I hold an M.Eng. degree in Petroleum Resources Technology from the Korea University of Science and Technology and a B.Sc. degree in Earth and Environment Sciences from Korea University.

Research Interests

At present, I have a primary interest in analysing sedimentary basins comprehensively with interdisciplinary data and techniques. My final goal is to build an integrated basin model including geodynamics, tectonics, sedimentology, paleoenvironment, and paleoclimate. I think that my technique and experiences would be important to develop basin evolution models of various basins, which would be highly useful in academic and industry fields.
