Event Details

The annual Victorian Universities Earth and Environmental Sciences Conference (VUEESC) was recently held on the 21st and 22nd of April. As part of its education awareness promotion, ASEG Victoria kindly sponsored the Geophysics session of this conference via a one-off cash prize to the best student presenter as judged by a selection of their peers. Due to the quality of the presentations, I am pleased to announce prizes were awarded to the top two student presenters from the Geophysics session, both of whom will be presenting at the next technical meeting night.


You are warmly invited to come support Mr. Mohammed Alsaleh (MSc candidate, Monash University) and Mr Chibuzo Chukwu (PhD candidate, Monash University) as they present their award winning talks on Tuesday 17th May from 6pm at The Kelvin Club. Admission to this event is free for members, so please ensure you have renewed your membership for 2022 before registering.


Please find each student's abstract from the official VUEESC 2022 conference volume here and here.



Mr. Mohammed Alsaleh bio: Mohammed is a new earth sciences master's student at Monash University. He previously held a teaching position at the Ministry of Education in Saudi Arabia where he gained 4-years of teaching experience. During his BSc at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), he participated in research activities that include seismic up-hole methods and fracking impacts on groundwater aquifers. He also participated in translating the "Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Exploration Geophysics" by Robert E. Sheriff from English to Arabic. He is currently working on estimating the sand properties from up-hole seismic data. As he begins a new journey at Monash, he is shifting his research focus to the geomagnetism of suture zones in the Arabian Shield.

Mr. Chibuzo Chukwu bio: Chibuzo is a current PhD student at Monash University, a researcher with the Structural and Geophysics Group, and a 2021 ASEG Foundation Grant recipient. He has experience in geophysical surveys, processing and interpreting potential field, seismic and near-surface geophysical data for mineral exploration and tectonic studies.  Chibuzo's PhD research is focused on unravelling the influence of pre-existing structures in the evolution of triple junctions using a multi-scale and multi-disciplinary approach that includes a combination of structural geology, potential fields geophysics, seismic, well-logs, 2D & 3D modelling, machine learning and drone surveys.

Note: Light refreshments will be served during the evening.
