Meet Dr. Folarin Kolawole, structural geologist

"Remember that movie 'Hidden Figures'? That is what Black Geoscientists are, in a scientific community where we a minority. We are seen, yet largely unseen...unseen for our significant contributions to science...unseen for our unique perspectives and problem solving competencies....unseen for the grit that continuously fuel our endless pursuit of excellence!! My name is Folarin Kolawole; I recently obtained a PhD from the University of Oklahoma, United States. I am passionate about structural geology and my research integrates field structural data, Geophysics, and Geomechanics to investigate how the crust deforms in response to tectonic and anthropogenic stresses."
