Nigeria’s Tobi Ore is Among 8 West Virginia University Students Awarded Scholarships to Support Research

Tobi Ore, a Nigerian student, is one of eight graduate students from the United States and abroad who are performing substantial research while finishing their degrees, thanks to WVU Foundation funding.

The WVU Foundation Distinguished Doctorate Scholarship and the Carl del Signore Foundation Scholarship have been given to four doctoral students and four master’s students, respectively, by the Office of Graduate Education and Life.The prizes assist students in covering expenses and completing their theses or dissertations.

Tobi Ore, originally from Ekiti, Nigeria, is pursuing a doctorate in geology at WVU’s Eberly College of Arts and Sciences.

“This award holds immense significance to me, as it will assist in successfully finishing my dissertation on advancing machine learning-aided seismic interpretation and inversion for subsurface characterization,” Ore said in a press release. “I hope that this work will improve present industry automated interpretation systems, giving more flexibility to complex geological structures and stratigraphy. The projected outcome of my research holds promise for more efficient subsurface characterisation, which will contribute greatly to the development of sustainable energy solutions and the transition to a carbon-neutral future.”
