I started my PhD studies at the University of Sheffield in October, 2019 under the sponsorship of TetFund (Nigeria). I previously studied in the University of Benin, Nigeria for my BSc MEd and MBA between 1984 and 1997. In 2011/2012 session, I received a sponsorship award from TetFund (Nigeria) to study an MSc in Mathematics, Operations Research, Statistics and Econometrics (MORSE) from the University of Birmingham, UK. I worked at Niger State Polytechnic, Nigeria since 1987 and rose to the rank of a Chief Lecturer in 2006. I have received and completed two Institution Based Research Grants from TetFund (Nigeria) as Principal Investigator. Results from the studies already published in academic journals
- Research interests
My research focus has been on determinants of maternal and child health related outcomes especially in Low and Medium Income Countries (LMIC) using multivariate analysis techniques. My future studies are toward extending my interest into using more advanced statistical techniques of multilevel, simultaneous equations, structural equation models, etc. in health research especially as it relates to wellbeing and quality of life of those burdens with communicable and non-communicable diseases and also in the analysis of inequalities in Socioeconomic & Demographic indicators and their relationship with disease burdens.
