Muhedeen Lawal is a broadly trained geoscientist with expertise in marine geology and geophysics. Most of his key research focus on sub-seafloor gas accumulation and migration, seafloor seepage systems and their geological controls. This is done with a view to understanding the impacts of these systems on resource exploration, marine ecosystems and sub-seafloor storage assessment. He is also interested in exploring other active seafloor processes including submarine mass transport and deep-water sedimentary systems. Muhedeen’s research is primarily anchored on the use of geophysical methods e.g., seismic reflection, advanced seismic attribute methods, well log data and seafloor observations. His current field area is the northern Gulf of Mexico where he is investigating natural leakage pathways as risks for sub-seafloor CO2 storage. He has also been involved in projects in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, offshore New Zealand and Nigeria.
