    I had earlier worked with Zenith Bank Plc for five years before I resigned and took up a job as a lecturer which is my passion. I have my B.Sc. in Environmental Resources Management. I have my Master’s degree in Forest Food Resources and Agroforestry. I am currently undergoing a self sponsored PhD programme in Forest Ecology and Conservation Management at Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. My passion for research and experiential knowledge of climate change gained me a grant fully funded by Department for International Development through Association of Commonwealth Universities, United Kingdom and this made me a CLIMATE IMPACTS, RESEARCH CAPACITY AND LEADERSHIP ENHANCEMENT (CIRCLE) Fellow with the Association of Commonwealth Universities and I am currently a CIRCLE Ambassador.I have been privileged to visit Ghana on 3 different occasions, for my CIRCLE Research Fellowship at UDS, Tamale Ghana, I also attended a 4–day workshop on INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA, at UENR, Sunyani, Ghana.I have been to Nairobi Kenya on 3 different occasions, for proposal writing workshop, CIRCLE Induction and Post Fellowship programme with Prof. John F.

I have also been to Togo on a one day INTERNATIONAL TRAINING WORKSHOP ON IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON FOREST AREAS at University of Kara. I have been to Benin Republic on a one day training workshop on BENEFITS OF INDIGENOUS FOREST FOOD SPECIES IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA at the HILL-CITY UNIVERSITY BENIN. I have been trained in sampling techniques for research methods, experimental designs and data analysis in Nigeria. I have also attended various conferences and training workshops in Nigeria. I am an academic adviser to the undergraduate students; I am also responsible for invigilation of examination, computation of results for the undergraduate students. I teach various university courses from year one to final year like: Climate Change and Food Security, General Agriculture, Introduction to Forest food resources, Multiple Land Use Systems and others.
