What do you do?
Being a reservoir engineer is being able to convert petrophysical and geological data into dynamic flow reservoir models with the goal to enhance petroleum reserves, control operations and obtain maximum recovery
Why did you choose this field?
I choose to study petroleum engineering because when I was a child I was curious about the oil & gas production and technology behind it. I grew up in Gabon, in a small town called Port-gentil. The economy of the country is dominated by oil, and the oilfields are mainly located on and offshore around Port-gentil.
What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?
My great achievement is to work and live in a foreign country with a different culture and speaking foreign languages.
Why do you love working in STEM?
I love working in STEM because I like critical thinking, enjoy solving problems and collaborate with my peers interdisciplinary. I am looking forward sharing my passion to engineering with children, younger peers (male or female)
Best advice for next generation?
Stay focus, believe in yourself and know your strengths and work on your weaknesses
