Senior geophysicist (MSc) with experience of over twenty years in research, exploration and teaching.

Methodology

I have Master’s degree in geophysics from the University of Oklahoma – School of Geology and Geophysics and a Bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Addis Ababa. I have also attended a postgraduate level advanced training and research in geothermal technology at the United Nations University in Iceland and Petroleum Policy and Management intensive studies in Norway. In addition, I have attended numerous condensed courses, including petroleum economics, petroleum accounting, computer science, geophysics related softwares, etc. I have visited a number of countries both on business trips and on training programs.

Background

I am a senior geophysicist with experience of over twenty years from geophysical field data acquisition to processing and interpretation as well as supervision and petroleum negotiations. Currently, I am an adjunct instructor at Columbus Community College teaching physics.
