Research Interest

Topic: Toxicological Studies Of Plants To Insect Pests

Description: My research focuses on the use of Botanicals to control insect pests of medical and agricultural importance. Preservation and conservation of environmental resources and sustainable development. Botanical are biodegradable, selective and cost effective. My Ph. D studies was on toxicological study of selected plants from Badagry, Nigeria on malaria vector Anopheles gambiae. The result showed that plant based botanicals are may be the needed tool to control insect pests in future

Adoption of hybrid Solar - fish dryer for improved fish processing and sustainable livelihoods in Nigeria

Research Details

Food produce and products are being loss in enormous quantity due to due to deterioration, pests and diseases. Insects pests account for high quantity of damage and most often render produce/ harvests less attractive and consequently diminish their values. Fish handling handling and processing is not spare of insect pests attacks also. Traditional preservation techniques adopted by fish handlers includes smoking, sun-drying, and oven drying but all come with their attendant problems such as depletion of forest resources, fluctuating weather conditions and high consumption of petroleum products. Therefore there is need to look at renewable energy source that will be cost effective, available all year round and be generally acceptable with less effect on the quality and also reduce incidence of pests infestation.The main objective of the research is to evaluate the performance of hybrid solar dryers at reducing post harvest fish losses while increasing economic gains and reducing depletion of forest resources.
