My academic and industrial experiences are my journey in contributing to provide adequate energy while giving back to the environment. I possess theoretical and practical skills in mining, petroleum, and environment sectors, and I strive to solve challenging problems in energy from various perspectives. As a geophysicist currently working on Carbon Capture and Sequestration project, my career objective is to support the energy transition, by making the current dominant sources of energy cleaner.
