Personal profile


As a Postgraduate Doctoral Researcher and Vice President of the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) Student Chapter at the University of Manchester, I have built a strong foundation of skills and expertise through my significant professional experience and studies. This has been recognized with the award of an MSc with distinction from Teesside University and a first-class Honours Degree in Electronics and Communication from the University of Wolverhampton, demonstrating my commitment to academic excellence.

My current research efforts are at the forefront of innovation, focusing on digital rock analysis using deep learning techniques. This cutting-edge approach aims to improve image resolution and extract three-dimensional microstructure information from two-dimensional images. Moreover, I am actively exploring methods to streamline image processing tasks and refine image segmentation processes. These advancements hold significant promise in the context of renewable energy storage in the subsurface, offering benefits in terms of time efficiency and prediction accuracy.
