I am a Senior Lecturer in Construction Project Management, Division of Construction, Property and Surveying, School of Built Environment and Architecture. I joined LSBU in January 2020 having previously gathered experience in the construction industry, teaching and researching in the higher education sector spanning well over 20 years, both internationally and in the UK. I completed both B.Eng. and MSc degrees in Civil Engineering in Nigeria followed by a PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Portsmouth.

I lead and teach Construction Technology and Materials, Construction Management Project and Msc Construction, delivering research-based lectures to interactively engage students.

I supervise students' projects at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I also supervise PhD students and I am open to any potential PhD candidate interested in my research area.

I am a member of the IDoBE (Integrated Delivery of the Built Environment) research centre. My research interests include construction materials, steel fibre-reinforced concrete with an emphasis on the effects of distribution and orientation of fibres on the performance of fibre-reinforced concrete and the application of image analysis tools to analyse the positioning of fibres within the composite material, and the use of recycled aggregate in concrete. My recent research projects include the use of local building materials in construction such as adobe bricks enhanced with agricultural fibres and by-products for affordable construction materials in housing and sustainability in the construction industry, particularly in developing countries.

Prizes, awards, and accolades

Internal Challenge Research Grant Award (Apr 2020)

School of the Built Environment and Architecture, LSBU

The research, "Investigation into Adobe Blocks Enhanced with Eco-friendly Materials for the Production of Affordable and Sustainable Housing in Developing Countries” aimed at addressing the housing problems of millions of people in the developing countries living in abject poverty which among all other things, lack affordable shelters to house their families.


First prize Award in Thesis Competition (Jun 2014)

University of Portsmouth Faculty of Technology Research Conference.

Thesis titled "Key Factors Affecting Distribution and Orientation of Fibre in Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete and Subsequent Effects on Mechanical Properties" investigated the enhancement of crack arrest potency of steel fibres by the distribution and the positioning within the concrete matrix.
