I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Applied Ecology from Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, Nigeria; and a master’s degree in Conservation Biology from the prestigious A.P. Leventis Ornithological Research Institute (APLORI), University of Jos, Nigeria. Prior to obtaining these degrees, I had the privilege to be an intern at the APLORI, assisting in many types of ecological research.
I did my National Youth Service (NYSC) teaching biology-related courses at Federal College of Education (FCE), Katsina, Nigeria. During this period, I also volunteered to create awareness on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the NYSC/SDGs Community Development Service (CDS) group, as a member and later the Secretary-General of the CDS group. Immediately after my NYSC, I got a sponsorship for a master’s degree at APLORI, where I was trained in both Conservation Biology and Ornithology.
As a student at APLORI, I was fascinated by birds in-flight and how aircraft is nature-inspired, yet the conflicts that exist between birds and aircraft using the same airspace (bird strikes). So, I decided to study how birds utilize airport landscapes in Nigeria. I studied the factors that attract birds within and around the airports, relating it to bird and bird strikes data, and its implication for both avian and aviation safety.
I am research-oriented and very enthusiastic about education. I honestly believe that no research question is too complex, and knowledge and research outcomes are meant to be communicated in a simple and engaging way to a wide audience. My interests lie in data science, web development, database management, GIS & remote sensing, wildlife conservation, birds, and birdstrike risk assessment.
I love bird watching, reading, learning programming languages, and building websites like this one.
