I have a BSc in Biochemistry and MSc/PhD in Pharmacology & Therapeutics from the University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria. I came into the school in 2008 as a volunteer under the supervision of Dr Cally Roper and Dr Colin Sutherland. In 2009, I took on the role of a Research assistant with Colin working on drug resistance in Plasmodium falciparum, molecular diagnostics of malaria and genetic characterization of Plasmodium ovale.

I teach academic visitors, M.Sc and PhD students techniques in the laboratory. I give tutorial sessions to MSc students on Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. I also give one to one tutorials to MSc students. M.Sc project supervision.
I am currently involved in a MRC-funded project on studies of hepatic latency of human ovale malaria. This work borders on mosquito transmission, genomics (next generation sequencing) and ex-vivo cultures. I am also evaluating the molecular markers of drug resistance in symptomatic Nigerian children treated with various combinations of ACT.
