Mr. Olusegun Adesina is a Postgraduate Research Student within the Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Olusegun completed his undergraduate degree in 2000 at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, where he studied Geology. For half a decade after graduation, He worked for Nigerian Mining Corporation, Jos, where he was involved in many exploration projects for solid minerals across the country. He also worked as a water borehole drilling specialist before proceeding to the United Kingdom where he bagged his Masters Degree in Petroleum Engineering at the London South Bank University in 2012. He thereafter consulted for oil and gas companies both in the UK and Nigeria. He joined the University of Southampton in 2018 as an EPSRC funded postgraduate research student working on pipeline leak detection.

Research project(s)

Zero Leakage 2050

UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR), working in partnership with others, has taken a lead in the development of the water research agenda in the UK and Ireland by defining a strategic research programme to address the key challenges facing the industry, now and in the future. In the ISVR at Southampton University, we are working on one of the 12 Big Research Questions, ‘How will we achieve zero leakage in a sustainable way by 2050?’. In particular, in ISVR, we are looking at the fundamental research required to take Acoustic Leak Detection to a whole new level.
