Unlike most sedimentologists and stratigraphers Dr. Jaffri is equally proficient in carbonates and siliciclastics.
His doctorate at Colorado State University focused on sequence stratigraphy of mixed carbonate-siliciclastic-evaporite systems. Doctoral work was supplemented with projects with ExxonMobil Research Labs, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Delta Petroleum, and Brigham Oil and Gas. Masters Degree was acquired from Oklahoma State University and the thesis focused on mechanical stratigraphy of a fractured carbonate reservoir. Bachelors from the University of Colorado at Boulder involved fieldwork on fluvial stratigraphy.
