Branimir Segvic

College of Arts & Sciences, Department of Geosciences

Dr. Segvic is a clay mineralogist whose research has focused on topics ranging from clay diagenesis in clastic rocks and its impacts on reservoir quality to Quaternary clays in glacial environments. He has also interests in interdisciplinary studies promoting application of natural scientific methods to archaeology. In his research Dr. Segvic uses a range of analytical techniques that include X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, and other spectroscopic methods. In 2010, he received his PhD in Earth Sciences from the University of Heidelberg in Germany. Before joining TTU, Branimir held research positions in Germany and Canada, with the last being at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, where he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Group of Reservoir Geology and Basin Analyses.
