I hold a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) in Chemical Engineering from Federal University of Technology Owerri.  Upon graduation I worked with Worley Parsons Nigeria for a period of one year before pursuing further studies. I completed a Masters’ degree in Advanced Process Engineering from Loughborough University, UK 2009. I enrolled for PhD in Chemical Technology in Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Madrid Spain which I completed with honors in July 2013. I am a member of several professional bodies such as Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), Chemical Society of Nigeria (CSN), and Institute of Chemical Engineers (ICHEME). I speak English and Spanish fluently.

Teaching Responsibilities:

Unit Lecturer

  • Prepared Course outlines and delivered lectures to undergraduates.
  • Prepared research proposals to solicit grants to carry out innovative and developmental research.
  • Participated in research collaborations for articles and publications. Mentoring programme for undergraduates.

Research Interest

Presently my research interest is centered on renewable energy and environmental management (waste water treatment and sanitation). These are areas that are of immense to third world or developing countries as well as developed nations. Renewable energy will provide a viable alternative to the power generation problems that has plagued many developing countries. Developing alternative energy sources will bring about the desired development and industrialization that will allow Africa emerge on the world economic scene. Hence any technology developed that can meet this need of energy will be encouraged and sought after as it presents a solution to a problem.

Another research interest is in waste management and water treatment, this relates with the welfare and health of the community. It is said in many circles that ‘Health is Wealth’. The wealth of a community/country cannot and should not be compromised; using technology to improve the well-being and general hygiene in developing countries has to be explored. The prevention and containment of basic bacterial and viral diseases associated with poor hygiene will allow infrastructural development and general progress of these developing countries. I believe in applying science to provide solutions to problems associated with the existence of the life.
