On a mission to solve some of Africa’s greatest problems
My name is Elizabeth Obode; I am an energy engineer with a background in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Ibadan. I gained experience in upstream oil and gas with Schlumberger.
I am currently undergoing Graduate studies in Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University at Qatar where in conjunction with Qatar foundation and Conoco Philps, I research on a Blue energy source.
My key interest lies in sustainable energy – ensuring that energy poverty is dealt with while handling climate change. I have written works on unconventional resource production and mathematical model to characterize fluid flow. I am excited about the ‘colorful’ energy landscape from ‘blue to turquoise’, the best technology for blue and green hydrogen production, the right geological formations to sequester carbon and the mining technologies for harnessing rare earth metals.
I love reading Brandon Sanderson, Nasim Taleb and other people that have achieved great things in the Energy Sector, any spare time I have is spent wondering about black swans and the emperor’s soul.
