I am a Research Scientist at the Rubber Research Institute of Nigeria. I completed my PhD in Polymer Chemistry at the University of Benin, Nigeria. My areas of interest include the fields of environmental science, polymer composites and wood technology.

I am interested in creating more awareness on the importance and relevance of chemistry to the development of Africa. The need for more funding and provision of modern research facility to tertiary and research Institution by African leaders. To encourage the Scientist from the region to collaborate with colleagues from developed countries.
