My Ph.D. project entitled "Sequence stratigraphy and architecture of syn-rift sediments, Eastern margin of the Gulf of Suez, Egypt". The project aims to tackle how patterns of sedimentation and erosion (e.g. development of stratigraphic discontinuities) relate to the propagation of faults and folds, the tilting of fault blocks, and independently quantified sea-level change during the early to middle Miocene. The project involves physical stratigraphic and structural mapping, sedimentology, stable isotope stratigraphy, and high resolution Sr-isotope dating of both shells and microfossils.
