I hold a PhD degree in applied geosciences from the University of Tuebingen, Germany with competences in applied geophysics, hydrology and in situ geotechnologies. I also have research, teaching and industry experiences and have lived and worked in over 12 countries in 3 continents including Africa, Europe and North America. Prior to joining the University of Toledo as a tenure-track assistant professor, some of my recent experiences include working as a Direct Sensing Specialist and Field Engineer at Fugro, Germany Land GmbH, serving as a sessional lecturer and research visitor at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Toronto in Canada and serving as a Visiting Researcher and Diaspora Expert Fellow at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. I currently focus on integrating these experiences to conduct cutting edge research in hydro- and environmental geophysics and engage students in the classroom focussing on stimulating a learning experience in them. I am also passionate about knowledge and technology exchange, data-driven policies and applied scientific research as mechanisms for driving development.
