Dr. Antun Husinec is an Associate Professor of Geology at St. Lawrence University, New York. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, and was a Fulbright postdoctoral fellow at Virginia Tech, USA. His current research uses the carbonate sedimentary record, coupled with the integration of stratigraphic analysis, modeling, and isotopic approaches to track the evolution of climates and oceans. He also is focused on high-resolution sequence stratigraphy and its application to carbonate petroleum reservoirs. Recent research projects include Mesozoic Adriatic platform carbonates (Croatia), Lower Paleozoic mixed carbonate-evaporite succession of the Williston Basin (USA); Upper Paleozoic Devonian mixed carbonate-siliciclastic succession (Poland); Upper Paleozoic Permian Zagros Basin (Persian Gulf); Lower Paleozoic mixed siliciclastic-carbonate succession, St. Lawrence Lowlands (USA); and modern carbonate environments of the Caribbean Region (Bahamas, Jamaica). Dr. Husinec has published extensively and regularly conducts field and laboratory courses, and technical seminars, primarily in the areas of carbonate sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy as applied to petroleum exploration. He has also worked as a consultant for petroleum companies in Europe and North America, and has received over $1 million in research grants. Dr. Husinec also is an avid diver with a special interest in the Caribbean reefs.
