Mr. Frederick Kofi Bempong




Petroleum Geosciences Engineering

Research Interest

  1. Sedimentology and Depositional Processes
  2. Sequence Stratigraphy and Rock Physics
  3. Seismic Reservoir Characterisation
  4. Paleoenvironmental Reconstruction and Geomorphological Dynamics 

Frederick holds a BSc. degree in Geology and an MSc. degree in Petroleum Geoscience, both from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He is skilled in field geology mapping, sequence stratigraphy, and unraveling depositional settings. Also, He is excited about engaging in activities that build on his research capabilities, teaching, and learning as well as understanding new frontiers. Frederick hopes to someday leverage his degree and skills to become a renowned researcher in the field of Geosciences.
