Celebrating the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Expect ambitious initiatives from WGE leadership

The United Nations have proclaimed 11 February the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This day is set aside to ensure full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, and this is one of our goals in the EAGE Women in Geoscience and Engineering (WGE) Special Interest Community.

Our WGE Committee is a team made up of women from diverse cultural and career backgrounds with a common goal: to support gender equity in fields of geoscience and engineering. They are putting together strategic activities this year to enable increased and sustainable inclusion of women in the geoscience and engineering community. Head to First Break this month and read the WGE Committee’s thoughts after their first 100 days in office and what the community stands for.

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.
