I am a passionate and highly motivated academic with research expertise in physiologically based pharmacokinetics (PBPK). I aspire to mentor and inspire the next generations of scientist.
I completed my BPharm degree in Pharmacy from University of Lagos, Nigeria and proceeded to gain clinical pharmacy experience as a pharmacist at the Chevron Nigeria Limited Hospital in Lagos and Reddington Multispecialist Hospital in Lagos for about 3 years.
I have an MSc. clinical pharmacy degree from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow and I did my MSc project in the area of pharmacokinetics under the supervision of Dr Alison Thomson.
I have a PhD degree in physiologically based pharmacokinetics from Aston University which was obtained under the supervision of Dr Raj S.K Badhan and Prof Michael Coleman. My research involved the development of physiologically based pharmacokinetic models for antimalarial drugs used in special populations and was aimed at assessment of the pharmacokinetics of antimalarials in these population groups with the focus of understanding the pharmacokinetics of antimalarials and optimisation of antimalarial medication therapy.
I joined University of Nottingham in 2019 as an Assistant Professor in Pharmacology.
Pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, PBPK modelling in special populations.
I am passionate about research inspired teaching excellence. I am currently a fellow of the HEA and hope to climb up the ranks in the future.
I am passionate about utilising current technologies to enhance students learning experience and facilitating learning in ways that promotes students engagement with the contents being learnt.
