Currently, I am at an advanced stage of completing my PhD Degree Programme in Environmental Sciences at the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences (SEES) University of Portsmouth, United Kingdom. I have been researching since the last four years, based on specialty in the field of Marine Sediment Biogeochemistry and Environmental Analysis and Ecosystem in the area of Marine Pollution of the harbor system as a result of shipping, industrial and natural activities. Acquired over twelve years working experience in monitoring and evaluation of pollution control and management in coastal marine and ecosystem within the maritime industry. I possess a range of skills in monitoring marine pollution through identification and detection of Chemical, Biological and Physical pollutants. Analysing and assessing the concentrations of these contaminants using modern advanced environmental equipment, and relate its findings to various sources including quantifications and fluxes from local environment, shipping and industrial activities. The skills also include assessing and evaluating the likely effects of these contaminants on marine environment, marine biota and human health effects in line with global environmental best practices.


Marine sediment geochemistry.

PhD research title: A detailed investigation of chemical contaminants on sediment geochemistry in Lagos Harbour, Nigeria.
