Tolulope Olugboji is an Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester (UR). Olugboji is a Furth Award recipient (given to promising early-career scientists at the UofR) and a NEF fellow (a select program that recognizes Africa’s best young scientists and technologists). At UR he leads the computational seismology and geophysics group. His group uses recordings of ground vibrations from seismic sensors across the globe, combined with high-performance computing, to build high-resolution images of Earth’s interior. Research advances include design of denoising techniques for amphibious seismic arrays,  probabilistic seismic imaging across the African continent, and  structure of the oceanic lithosphere.
