Hi and welcome to my personal space. Here you're going to read briefly about my profile, academic journey, research interest, among others.

Brief Info

I am currently a doctoral student at the School of Computing, University of Eastern Finland. Before enrolling for the doctoral programme at the University of Eastern Finland, I  completed my Master's degree in Computer Science from the University of Ilorin, Nigeria and Bachelor degree in Computer Science from the University of Jos. I am a member of edTech research group, IMPDET-LE, and Finnish UniPID DocNet Researcher. I fully began my lecturing career at the Salem University Lokoja in 2018.  Before then, I have worked as the Head of ICT, Social Investment Programme, Lokoja, Kogi State, Nigeria.  For over 4 years, I have been developing web applications that cut across the financial management system, integrated payroll system, school, and student portals.

I have also organized tutorials for computer science students at higher institutions in Nigeria including Federal University Lokoja, where I co-taught Introduction to Computer Science, Digital Logic Design and Introduction to Programming (with Visual Basic and Java).
