My interest for clastic sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy sparked by the lessons received in the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain), where I did my Geoscience Degree. After pursuing an MSc in Geology and Sedimentary Reservoirs in the University of Barcelona, I did my PhD in sedimentology Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and a G&G internship with Det norske oljeselskap ASA (Norwegian Oil Company).
