IGC Fellow

Oluwaseyi Dasho holds a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree and a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Physics. His academic journey began with a profound interest in the fundamental principles governing the physical world, leading him to explore the intricacies of physics during his undergraduate and postgraduate studies. The pursuit of knowledge in Physics provided a solid foundation, shaping his analytical and research-oriented mindset.

In the earlier stages of his academic career, Oluwaseyi engaged in research projects that delved into the realms of theoretical and experimental physics, honing his skills in both conceptual understanding and practical applications. This diverse exposure equipped him with a comprehensive understanding of the intricate theories that govern the universe and the methodologies employed to investigate these phenomena.

Currently pursuing a Ph.D. in the Department of Geosciences at Virginia Tech, Oluwaseyi's research focus has transitioned towards the dynamic field of Earth Sciences. Under the guidance of Dr. Shirzaei, his current research explores the implications of land subsidence on relative sea level rise and coastal flooding. This interdisciplinary endeavor combines his physics background with geoscientific methodologies to address pressing issues related to environmental changes. Oluwaseyi Dasho's academic journey reflects a seamless integration of his prior experiences in physics with his dedication to advancing research in geosciences.
