Current positions

Lecturer in Petroleum and Gas Engineering


I joined the University of Salford as a Lecturer in Petroleum and Gas Engineering in January 2012. Prior to my appointment, I was a PhD research student at the same University.  During my studies, I extensively used Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) in the design and development of carbon dioxide effluent treatment unit in a Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) plant. Before coming to Salford, I worked at the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria as a lecturer in Petroleum and Gas Engineering.  I also have over fifteen years industrial experience in gas plant operations and gas utilization.  I worked as Plant Superintendent at National Fertilizer Company of Nigeria (NAFCON) and as the same position at Eleme-Indorama Petrochemical Complex, both in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

I am presently the BEng Petroleum and Mechanical Engineering programme coordinator at the University of Salford.
