Profile

I am currently a Research Associate funded on work package (WP) 17 of the Collaborative European Neurotrauma Effectiveness Research in Traumatic Brain Injury (CENTER-TBI),which is a large-scale project supported by the European Union Framework 7 program. My research is carried out within the Centre for Urgent and emergency care Research (CURE) group. I joined ScHARR in 2012 and I have since worked on various projects in the areas of telehealth and care technologies, dementia, obesity and diabetes.

I have a degree in Pharmacy (B.Pharm) from the University of Lagos, Nigeria and a Masters in Public Health (MPH) from the University of Sheffield. Before joining the university, I practiced as a pharmacist in Nigeria for two years. In the UK, I have previously worked as a public health promoter, organising NHS health check programmes in the community to supplement those carried out by GP surgeries as well as a health promotion intern with Bowel Cancer UK.
