Yemane Kelemework Equbamariam is instructor with a rank of lecturer at the School of Earth Sciences, Addis Ababa University. He has been conducting a research work entitled “Integrated geophysical investigations of the central Main Ethiopian Rift and adjacent plateaus with implication for crustal structure and Moho depth determinations”. The research work mainly deals with investigating the crustal structure and subsurface density distribution in the crust of the Ethiopian Rift and adjacent plateaus using integrated geophysical techniques (gravity, magnetic and seismic methods). In addition, the end results of the research work are anticipated to contribute to the national challenge for the assessment of natural resources (such as groundwater, geothermal, epithermal gold resources) and mitigation of natural hazards (such as earthquakes, volcanic activities) associated with the Ethiopian Rift System.
Launched in 2007 to recognise the best studies on efficiency, sustainability and environmental protection, the annual Eni Award is an international prize for applied research in the field of energy. Every year the competition involves many of the most important scientific institutions in the world as well as Eni's own in-house laboratories. The 2017 edition marks the 10th anniversary of the Eni Award, with important innovations regarding the competition's subject areas and the establishment of a new category. Called Debut in Research: Young Talents from Africa, this will be reserved for graduates of African universities.
