If by some fiat I had to restrict all this writing to one sentence, this is the one I would choose: The summit of Mt. Everest is marine limestone” (John McPhee)

Dr. Antonio Benedicto has been an Assistant Professor at the University of Paris Paris-Saclay since 1999. He undertook his graduate degrees in Geology and Gemology at University of Barcelona (Spain) and his European PhD in structural geology at the University of Montpellier (France). Dr. Benedicto specializes in two areas: the structural controls of ore deposits and spatial-temporal evolution of fluid systems in deformed crust. Over his career, he has worked extensively on aspects of structural analysis with the oil and mineral resource industry, serving as a senior expert for Worldwide-based uranium exploration projects and most recently as a structural expert on Canadian-based projects. He has published numerous scientific articles in his areas of expertise, including aspects of deformation in carbonate rocks and deformation bands in silico-clastic rocks, the growth of faults, the interaction between fractures and fluids, and the structural controls of unconformity-related basement hosted uranium deposits. He has supervised several PhD and a large number of Masters and MsC students. He is a recognized expert in the area of fault processes and fault-controlled fluid flow in deformed crust.
