Short Profile


For the last 32 years (1988 – 2021), I have been involved in the design, fabrication and evaluation of more than 35 agro-food processing machines (for small and medium scale levels) to enhance food security in Nigeria and Africa for both crop and animal materials. I have also been involved in the development of an aerodynamic model for the design of grain classifier; software for the management of strategic grain reserve in Nigeria and another software for the prediction of EMC, RH and Temperature in silo.

Immediate Past Director, Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Nigeria.

Programme Leader, Agricultural Mechanization and Sustainable Environment (AMS), Centre of Excellence in Agricultural Development and Sustainable Environment (CEADESE), FUNAAB.
