I obtained my B.Tech., M.Tech., and Ph.D. degrees in Applied Biochemistry from the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), Nigeria in 2010, 2015, and 2021, respectively. I was a recipient of the 2016 DBT-TWAS Postgraduate Sandwich Fellowship, and I also won the 2021 DBT-UNESCO-TWAS postdoctoral fellowship award. I am passionate about studying and understanding brain function, especially the crosstalk between the cell types of the brain, and the relationship between the cell types and brain regions in physiological and pathological conditions. I like hanging out with my family and watching movies and soccer in my free time. I am currently the treasurer of the Washington University in St Louis Black Postdoctoral Association, an association that aims to enhance the experience of black postdoctoral fellows by establishing an interdisciplinary community that will serve as a cultivating and supportive environment while providing opportunities for career development and peer-to-peer mentorship. Presently, I am using computational and experimental approaches to gain an in-depth understanding of the role of astrocytes in neurodegenerative diseases with a view to finding possible therapeutic targets.
