I previously studied a NCE in Physics and Chemistry at the College of Education, Benin City Nigeria, followed by a BSc Ed in Computer Science at the University of Benin, Benin City Nigeria. I came to the UK to study my Master's in Information Communication Technology and Education at the University of Leeds. Following completion, I came to Sheffield Hallam University to study for my PhD.
My career interest has always been in education and research, and as soon as I got my BSc(Ed) degree, I went into teaching. Taught in secondary schools (Nigeria and also here in the UK). I taught at Benson Idahosa University and the Edo State Institute of Technology and Management (ESITM), both in Nigeria. During my teaching years in ESITM I published two journal articles and two books in the field of computing. After leaving the University of Leeds, my MA dissertation was also published as a book.
Having integrated education into my field of study since the start of my educational career, I wanted to continue in that fashion with my PhD in Computing, and Sheffield Hallam University offered me that opportunity. We (the supervisory team) are designing an application that uses a multi-agent system to pre-assess prior knowledge in a learner and then take decision on what is needed to be learnt. The research culture at Hallam is challenging and enjoyable. Enjoyable not just because my supervisors have the best expertise in multi-agent systems, but because they are very supportive: for materials, team work in programming, regular supervision, and conference notification and publishing.
My post-doctoral career is hoped to be in academics, in Artificial Intelligence and knowledge representation, the focus of my PhD studies.
