Recognizing women in engineering

Celebrate International Women in Engineering Day with EAGE

The International Women in Engineering Day – 23 June – means a lot to our community: it provides an important opportunity to highlight women engineers working across industry and academia, and their contributions, including in our largest interest group. Join us and the EAGE Women in Geoscience & Engineering community (WGE) as we celebrate the day!

With a strong multidisciplinary network to facilitate collaboration across fields, EAGE is proud to support great work in the field of engineering – here are some ways you can get involved too.

Start with our Women in Geoscience & Engineering community: it is an active network of over 1800 professionals worldwide sharing opportunities. Here you can find advice and resources for your career development, as well as new contacts and mentors to help on the way. All are welcome to join via LinkedIn.

This year at the NSG 2021 Conference you can look forward to a great keynote speech by Dr Susan Hubbard, a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, Senior Scientist and Associate Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Speaking of Engineering, at GET 2021 Conference there is a chance to bring forward your own ideas for multidisciplinary collaborations. With ‘Integration’ as a main topic, we especially aim at highlighting synergies from the mix of geoscience and engineering, and their potential to unlock new opportunities for the community at large. All combinations are welcome!

Finally, EarthDoc offers great insights on the cross-over applications of geoscience and engineering. Start with E.V. Sharifijanova’s ‘Using 3D Seismic Exploration to Solve Engineering Problems’ and explore! EAGE members have free access to all recent papers in EarthDoc.

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.
