Department of Pharmaceutics, Faculty of Pharmacy, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.


I hold a B. Pharm and an MSc in Pharmaceutics from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. I joined the University in 2014 as a Junior Trainee fellow and have now been regraded to the position of Lecturer II. I am currently running a PhD in the same Department.

Although my attention is on teaching and promoting effective classroom learning, my research interests are in Enterobacteriaceae and antibiotic resistance. Experience gained from research enhances my teaching of the practical aspects of Pharmaceutical Microbiology.

I have had previous experiences in teaching as a demonstrator internee at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Hospital Pharmacist at Reemee Hospital, Bauchi State and Osun State Hospital Management Board. I have also worked as a community Pharmacist in various communities in Nigeria.

I am a registered pharmacist and a member of the Nigerian Association of Pharmacists in Academia (NAPA) and the Association of Lady Pharmacists (ALPs), Nigeria.
