Degree sought: Ph.D. in Environmental Science
Advisor: Dr. Lynne Carpenter-Boggs
I was born in Ilesa, an agricultural-based community in south-western part of Nigeria. I studied Agricultural Economics at an undergraduate level at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), one of the leading colleges in agricultural innovations in Africa. My interest in sustainable agriculture lead me to WSU in the fall of 2011 when I joined Dr. Lynne Carpenter-Boggs’s lab working on development of “Ofoot”, a web app for estimating carbon footprint of organic farms.
I am particularly interested in studying ecosystem services of agricultural systems. At the moment, my research is focused on carbon footprint of agricultural systems.
Educational background: M.S. in Soil Science – Washington State University; B.Agric (Agricultural Economics) – Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria
