Space Applications

Born in the city of Lagos, western Nigeria and trained as an Electrical/Electronics Engineer at the Ahmadu Bello University, Nigeria. Received both Master and PhD degree in space systems engineering at the Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech), Japan (http://www.kyutech.ac.jp/english/) in 2013 and 2018 respectively. During my five years graduate school at the Laboratory of Spacecraft Environment Interaction Engineering (LaSEINE) I developed a plasma measurement system for characterizing low Earth orbit grade plasma that was integrated as a mission payload for HORYU-IV satellite (10kg, 30cm cubic small satellite). Led fourteen other mid-career system Engineers from Japan, Ghana, Mongolia, Nigeria and Bangladesh in the design, development and operation of constellation of five 1U CubeSats, launched in July 2017 and operated from seven interconnected ground stations across the world. The Project won the 2017 Airbus diversity award (www.company.airbus.com/diversityaward). I am currently an Assistant Professor in space application at the Strasbourg central campus of the International Space University. My research interest are applications of small satellite for capacity development, integrated space application, plasma science, science and technology policy, diversity and inclusion in engineering education.
