Short Profile

Prof GBADEBO Adewole Michael, is a Geologist, Environmental Scientist and a University Lecturer. He holds B.Sc (Hons) Geology from University of PortHarcourt (1987); M.Sc Applied Geology (Sedimentary/Petroleum Option) from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife; Ph.D in Applied Geochemistry from University of Ibadan (2007) and Post Graduate Diploma in Groundwater Exploration, Water Resources Exploitation and Conservation, from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Rehovot, Israel (2007). As a fresh graduate from the University, he worked briefly as a Geologist with Oil servicing and Mining companies before joining the University as a Lecturer in 1995. Between 1995 and 1998, he worked as a lecturer and researcher in the Geology Departments of Ogun State University, Ago-Iwoye; Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile- Ife and Federal University of Technology, Akure Nigeria. Due to his strong interest in Environmental Geology and Geochemistry, Dr. Gbadebo picked up appointment with Environmental Management and Toxicology Department of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta in 1999 (being the only University in Nigeria that offers degree programme in Environmental Science at undergraduate level), where he works till date and teaches courses like Ecological Disasters and Control, Waste Management, Environmental Global Issues and Environmental Geosciences etc. Prof. Gbadebo has also served as an associate lecturer in the Geology Departments of Crawford University, Igbesa and Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, where he taught courses like Geology of Africa, Basin Analysis, Palynology and Micropaleontology and Environmental Geology e.t.c . Prof. Gbadebo is widely travelled and enjoyed travel grants and supports from international bodies like ‘ICOBTE; ‘IWGMG’; ’UNESCO’; ‘Exxon MOBIL in USA’; ‘MASHAV’ e.t.c for academic interactions and has also visited countries like Sweden (2003); Edinburgh (2004); Salt Lake City, Utta – USA (2005); Israel (2007); California, USA (2008) e.t.c. He has played and still playing supervisory role to graduate students -23 Master and 7 PhD research students. He has over 40 publications to his credit. Prof. Gbadebo welcomes collaboration from interested and competent scientists and researchers from any part of the world.
