Dr. Godet received his Master degree in 2002 from the University of Lille I (France) and his PhD degree in 2006 from the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland). The main topics of his doctoral thesis included carbonate sedimentology, geochemistry and stratigraphy. Between 2007 and 2010, Dr. Godet worked as a Geologist and then as a Team Leader for Neftex Petroleum Consultants ltd., a consultancy company based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, United-Kingdom. There, he developed strong skills in terms of sequence stratigraphy and large-scale paleoenvironmental reconstruction. Subsequently, he joined the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) for a 3-years postdoctoral fellowship sponsored by the Swiss National Foundation for Science, during which his research focused on the paleoceanographic significance of drowning unconformities preserved in Early Cretaceous successions of the Helvetic Alps and western Swiss Jura. His current research at UTSA involves carbonate sedimentology and diagenesis, as well as chemostratigraphy and paleoenvironmental reconstructions.
