Senior Petroleum Geochemist/Basin Modeller
Tiago joined IGI in 2013. He has a degree in Geology from Lisbon University (Portugal, 1998) and a PhD in Marine Geophysics from Oxford University (UK, 2008). During this period there was also the opportunity to get involved in a variety of marine geology-geophysics research projects, including offshore field work in the SW Iberia Margin, the Azores and Mid-Atlantic ridge, and NE Brazil.
Later, during his postdoctoral fellowship at LNEG and IPMA (Portugal), in collaboration with Aarhus University (Denmark), Tiago focus on the study of rift processes, the structure and evolution of passive continental margins, and plate boundary neotectonics. He also lectured the course of Basin Dynamics at Lisbon University (geophysics master) between 2010 and 2012. In the meanwhile, Tiago acquired experience in basin and petroleum systems modelling, with projects in Oman and along the West Africa rift margin, and in the treatment-processing of large geological and geophysical datasets incorporated in HC-industry exploration atlas.
A newcomer to Devon, Tiago has been hiking the countryside with the family in his spare time… and trying to engage in the outdoor sport activities, with or without the rain!
