Lecturer II


I was born on October 3rd 1982 at Modakeke, Osun State, Nigeria. I attended Modakeke High School, Modakeke, Osun State, Nigeria and graduated in 1996. I then proceeded to Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, where I graduated with a in Botany in 2005. I did the compulsory national service at Government Senior Secondary School, Maraba ,Pushit, Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State. I proceeded to Obafemi Awolowo University for a Masters degree in Botany with Plant Physiology Option and finished in 2011. I also bagged a Ph.D. in Botany (Plant Physiology Option) in 2015 from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile, Ife, Nigeria. I am married with two kids.

As a plant Biologist in the Department of Biological Sciences, I teach courses in the area of Plant Biology as well as some General Biology courses. The courses I have thought in UNIOSUN include the following among others, BIO 102(General Biology II), BIO 107(Experimental Biology
I), BIO 108(Experimental Biology II) BIO 202(Biological Techniques), BIO 204(General Physiology), BOT 303(Plant Physiology), BOT 406(Plant Growth and Development), BOT 410(Plant Biochemistry),
I am the Examination officer of the Department, overseeing the results of the students in the three programmes in the department. I process students’ results until they are approved by the senate of the university. I am the level adviser of the 300 and 400 level students of Plant Biology. I serve as members of various committees in the department.

My research work has been in the area of Plant Stress Physiology. The research focuses on the effect of biotic and abiotic stress factors on the growth and yield of crops. Effects of these stress factors on photosynthetic pigment accumulation, especially chlorophyll a in plants are also being captured . A good understanding of the effects and responses of plants to stress conditions is crucial to human existence as it will help in ensuring a high production of food for the ever expanding world population.
Most of the works that I have done in this area of research as well as those that are ongoing are on vegetable crops (Tomato, Pepper, Cochorous, Okra, Amaranthus, e.t.c). I research majorly on vegetables because despite the very many benefits they have, there is a paucity of information in the literature on the effects and responses of stress factors on them, unlike on field crops like maize, cowpea, sorghum Vegetables are known to have a lot of phytochemicals that are of different health benefits.
