Senior geophysicist (MSc) with experience of over twenty years in research, exploration and teaching.

I have Master’s degree in geophysics from the University of Oklahoma – School of Geology and Geophysics and a Bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Addis Ababa. I have also attended a postgraduate level advanced training and research in geothermal technology at the United Nations University in Iceland and Petroleum Policy and Management intensive studies in Norway. In addition, I have attended numerous condensed courses, including petroleum economics, petroleum accounting, computer science, geophysics related softwares, etc. I have visited a number of countries both on business trips and on training programs.

Mohammedberhan's Practical information

I teach physics. Lessons are available for the following levels: junior high / middle school, sophomore, junior, senior, advanced technical certificate, college, adult education

I give lessons in person at my home or a student's home.

I give lessons by webcam.

I logged in these last 2 weeks.

Mohammedberhan's Experience

I am a senior geophysicist with experience of over twenty years from geophysical field data acquisition to processing and interpretation as well as supervision and petroleum negotiations. Currently, I am an adjunct instructor at Columbus Community College teaching physics.
