JM defends his dissertation!

Dr. JM Guotana successfully defended his dissertation during an online presentation last August 7, 2020. JM will officially be conferred his doctoral degree on September 28, 2020 in Kanazawa University.

Since it was established, RWG has helped non-UP and non-Geology graduates obtain their MS Geology degrees from UP. JM is the latest addition to this growing number of RWG alumni with advanced degrees. He obtained his BS Geology degree from Adamson University then earned his MS Geology from NIGS before going to Kanazawa University for his PhD.

In 2016, Dr. Jenielyn Padrones obtained her doctoral degree from Akita University. Her undergraduate degree was BS Environmental Science from Palawan State University. She joined RWG as a Project Research Assistant while doing her masteral studies.

RWG also produced MS Geology graduates from graduates of BS Business Administration (Ricky Salapare) and BS Business Management (Hertz Balmater).

This year, RWG produced its first MS Geology graduates from the Negros Oriental State University (Florence Annette Labis and Omar Soberano).
