My research focuses on Petroleum and Environmental Geochemistry of various basins in Nigeria. The findings in my previous studies revealed the organic pollution status of the heavily exploited Niger Delta of Nigeria and I set the record straight amidst conflicting unscientific assertions through conferences and research publications. I have also established through my research work the bioaccumulation and biomonitoring potentials of higher plants with regards to organic pollutants. I have been able to identify some higher plants that could serve as phytoremediators to clean up polluted sites at minimal cost. Secondly, cost effective onsite bio-monitors for organic pollutants have also been identified. Through my previous studies, I have been able to identify some key biomarkers which are useful in environmental monitoring and assessment. My research group is currently looking at the occurrence and mitigations of PAHs derivatives (Oxy-PAHs, Nitrated PAHs, Halogenated PAHs etc) in aerosols and particulates in Lagos and Ogun States of Nigeria.
