APPLIED GEOLOGIST (GOLD MEDALIST) SPECIALIZE IN BASIN ANALYSIS. I AM TENACIOUS AND DETERMINED, I LEVERAGE MY TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE AND TEAMWORK SKILLS TO FIND FEASIBLE AND GEOLOGICALLY SOUND APPROACHES TO DO QUALITY RESEARCH
I am nascent graduate Applied Geologist with a gold medal from Institute of Geology, University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Muzaffarabad, Pakistan. My fervour for working in academia has been sparked since the earlier phase of bachelor’s. Studying geology provided me with a lot of field experiences and incited me to develop a curiosity of how earth dynamics are related to the formation and development of petroleum. I am sure that my varied study in Applied Geology will prove to be a benefit for your organization, which I work for and that I will be bringing an understanding about earth, and its
properties, which will be appreciated by your company with my strong geological experience, coupled with my enthusiasm and dedication to achieving success, I feel confident that I would significantly benefit your organization in terms of doing quality research.
Below is a summary of my background, which has got me to apply in your university.
- I have completed my graduation in Applied Geology with different courses like Petrophysics, Structure Geology, Geotectonics, Geotechnical Engineering, Geological Engineering, Geomechanics, Hydrogeology, Economic Geology, Geochemistry and Stratigraphy.• I have topped my session 2015-19 and got gold medal.
- I was the only student sent to Mari Petroleum Company Limited Islamabad by the Institute of Geology, University of Azad Jammu & Kashmir for paid meritorious internship of six weeks based on my excellence in academics.

My research interests and reasons behind them
This will be completed by determining the location and architecture of reservoir and seal lithologies and establishing the location and effect of faults on the reservoir connectivity within the basin.
Overpressure is economically significant to help identify potential reservoirs and produce resources. However, it is important to understand overpressure to increase safety for personnel during drilling and to protect the environment from complications. Offshore drilling is considerably more expensive due to the locations involved and specialized equipment required, and that cost can be further increased if the well encounters overpressure. Understanding the mechanisms, magnitudes, and locations of overpressure in the basin allows safer, cost effective drilling and well casing programs to be designed. This is especially important as exploration for petroleum resources increases throughout the basin.
