Profile

With a B.Tech in Applied Geology (2012) from Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi State, Nigeria, I proceeded to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka where I obtained an M.Sc. (Engineering Geology) in 2018. I have been working as a Graduate Assistant in the Department of Applied Geology ATBU Bauch from 2015 whilst completing my M.Sc studies and actively engaging in researches. My M.Sc research was focused on evaluating the load bearing capacity of near surface soil in Ogbadibo LGA of Benue state Nigeria http://doi.org/10.1007/s12594-017-0668-x. This research was necessitated by the widespread varying degrees of deformation and cracks seen on structures in the area coupled with the presence of underlying major fault and several fractures across the area.  

Presenting, my Ph.D is focused on understanding the pore-scale physical and geomechanic effect of CO2 storage on saline sandstone reservior using advance imaging and numerical modeling techniques. I look to build upon my skill of rock mechanics and engineering as well as gain expertise in advance pore-scale image processing, numerical modeling of pore scale fluid-structure interaction (FSI) relating to CO2 storage and X-ray diffractiometry.

 

Research interests

 My Ph.D is focused on understanding the phased pore-scale physical and geomechanic effect of CO2 storage on saline sandstone reservior using advance imaging and numerical modeling techniques. I will be using laboratory rock mechanics testing, advance pore-scale image processing techniques and Numerical modeling (Finite element method) of pore scale fluid-structure interaction (FSI) to achieve this. X-ray diffraction technique will be handy to show mineralogic change.

My research interests include Geotechnics and Engineering Geology, Rock mechanics and Geomechanics of CO2 underground storage.
