Dr Ezekiel Yusuf Yenne


I am a Visiting Research Fellow at the Institute of Applied Geosciences (IAG) of the School of Earth and Environment. My doctoral research examined and modeled structural architecture of basins using gravity/magnetic and remote sensing techniques. Previously, from 2017 to 2022, I was a field demonstrator/module assistant at the Institute of Applied Geosciences (IAG), University of Leeds. 

My research interest is currently focused on the application of deep and machine learning algorithms in modelling geologic structures using airborne-based geophysical and remote sensing datasets.

Research interests

My research interest is focused on the application of deep and machine learning algorithms on airborne-based datasets (gravity, radiometry, magnetics, and remote sensing) for;

  • Characterisation of regional geology
  • Basement framework delineation
  • 2-D and 3-D geological and structural modelling
  • Lithospheric and thermal state analyses
