Dr Pamela Lomoro

1.11 & 1.11A Merchant Venturers Building

Dr Pamela Lomoro will speak about developing a career in the energy sector and her professional experience so far.

Dr Lomoro is an engineering development manager for a proposed International Stress Engineering Centre (I-SEC) for residual stress research, consultancy and training. The centre is a collaborative partnership between the Open University and the ISIS Group at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) in Harwell, Oxfordshire, and is planned to be fully operational in early 2018.  Prior to joining I-SEC, Dr Lomoro worked as a senior materials engineer in the offshore oil and gas industry, and as a development engineering consultant for an onshore oil project.

In this presentation, Dr Lomoro will explore solid mechanics and materials skills and the diverse career pathways within the oil and gas industry to which these skills could be applied. She will give her perspective on the volatile global oil market and prospects for employment. She will speak about her 7 years post PhD career and will elaborate on how to position yourself to find the right job that suits your interest and skills within the wider energy industry.

All welcome. Students will have the opportunity to network with Pamela over light refreshments after the talk.
