Other than research and academia experience, I have worked in the industry with Alcatel-Lucent (now NOKIA) Nigeria as a wireless pre-sales engineer from 2013–2014, in the department of technical sales. 

My research interests include Quality of Experience (QoE) estimation, modelling and management for medical and general videos, object classification and detection in computer vision applications, and next generation wireless networks including non-orthogonal multiple access.

I specialise in 5G New Radio & Beyond, and currently I am working as a System Architect jointly with Kingston University and Pangea Connected London under the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships by Innovate UK. My responsibilities include managing a highly ambitious project that will allow smart and seamless two-way multimedia communication for emergency services such as ambulances, law enforcement agencies etc. To find out more please visit Pangea-group.net.
