I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Georgia working with Dr. William Whitman. I am interested in expanding the genetic toolbox of methane-producing archaea for potential industrial application. I am originally from Lagos, Nigeria where I grew up and obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Plant Biology. I love to spend time chatting or driving around with my wife and 2-month old son. In my free time, I play soccer, read history and interact with friends and neighbors.
