I am a 32-year-old, PhD candidate and researcher at Makerere University in Petroleum
Geoscience. I am currently the Patron and Coordinator the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)
Nkumba Chapter. I have teaching experience six (06) years at Nkumba University in the field of
Geoscience, with specific competence areas in Petroleum Geophysics, Reservoir Geophysics,
Fluid and Earth Dynamics, Engineering Mathematics, Modelling and Simulations, occupational
health and safety, and renewable energy resources. I possess good knowledge in seismic data
collection, editing, processing and interpretation. In addition, I possess skills in ArcGIS, Matlab,
Petrel, COMSOL, and Geosoft. I have worked with STATOIL AS (NO) and GEOTECH
SOLUTIONS (U) in offshore seismic reflection for deep marine in Svalbard and Onshore shallow
seismic reflection in Buliisa and Nwoya districts Uganda, respectively.
