As a natural resources industry expert and with a passion for investing, I conduct in-depth research to generate valuation-based, actionable investment ideas for the member of The Natural Resources Hub (TNRH), a popular Seeking Alpha Marketplace service which also features top-performing model portfolios and a lively Chat Room. With a Ph.D. in geosciences, I have worked for decades in research, oil and gas industry, and industry data management. I have been managing family investment accounts through bull and bear markets with great returns. My hands-on industry working experience helps me in uncovering opportunities in the oil and gas, mineral resources, and other areas. I focus on identifying deep values and undervalued moated businesses with an asymmetrical risk-reward profile. My investing style is contrarian and mostly long.
