Dr Carmine Wainman
I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Australian School of Petroleum, University of Adelaide. I use sedimentology, stratigraphy and palynology to understand the evolution of ancient fluvial and marine depositional systems.
My research primarily focuses on understanding the evolution of Upper Cretaceous strata on Australia's southern margin using new data acquired from IODP Expedition 369 (September to November 2017) which I was a participant on. I use a combination of palynology, sedimentology, wireline log and seismic data to answer questions on palaeoenvironments, palaeoceanographic conditions and stratigraphic architecture. I also have research interests in Middle to Upper Jurassic coal-bearing strata in eastern Australia, Jurassic strata in the Mentelle Basin in Western Australia and palaeobotany.
