Personal profile


I am a PhD Student in the School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS), Paisley, Scotland where I am a member of the Artificial Intelligence, Visual Communications and Network (AVCN) research group. I have a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng.) degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria and a Master of Science (MSc.) degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh, Scotland. For my Master’s Thesis, I spent three months at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva, Switzerland where I was a member of the Low Power Converters (LPC) section and successfully implemented a board tester for validating electronic control boards for a 25kV/8A one-quadrant converter, supplying tetrodes of radio frequency (RF) cavities to CERN’s Proton Synchrotron (PS) accelerator.

Current research activities

Currently, I am working on an electric vehicle (EV) energy trading framework with data analytic infrastructure for green smart cities.

Desired research direction

My main research lie in enhancing microgrid resilience in green smart cities using distributed energy resources and emerging technologies like internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).
