Young Professionals


The EAGE YP community is the network of young professionals aged 35 or below who are interested in sharing and discussing advice on career development, work opportunities and the skills for a successful career. This community is also open to all members, regardless of age, who wish to support and engage with the YPs.

"I believe that being active in the YP community is at least as important as doing good technical work. In my opinion, the YP SIC is the best platform for a young geoscientist to exchange knowledge and experience with peers that have just started or are thinking about pursuing a career in this field. I was very enthusiastic to hear EAGE has clear plans to expand the YP platform and I am excited that I can contribute to fulfil these goals."


"I participated in the EAGE YP group, and have been delighted with their work. At the EAGE Annual they organize a panel that allows us as young professionals to listen and talk to distinguished, mid- to late career professionals about our futures. They also regularly publish interviews in their LinkedIn group, which allows me to learn about a variety of different topics—technical and nontechnical alike. […] Speaking to academics and industry professionals has allowed me to receive feedback on my work. Connecting with other students allows me to build relationships which I hope will last a lifetime."

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
