Dr. Olayomi Abiodun FALOWO

Lecturer II

Landmark University

Dr. Falowo Olayomi Abiodun is a lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Landmark University. He obtained his M.Sc degree in Chemical Engineering under the supervision of Late Professor S. K. Layokun. Falowo received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University under the tutelage of Prof. E. Betiku in 2018.  Before his appointment, he worked as a research associate in Biochemical Engineering Laboratory, O.A.U. Ile-Ife.  In addition to being co-researcher on numerous major research initiatives over the years, he had contributed to two books’ chapters. His current research focuses on the development of safe and sustainable nanomaterials capable of improving chemical processes in heterogeneous catalysis, renewable energy, and nanotechnology. New products are an integral part of chemical manufacturing, and synthesis through the application of waste biomass is expected to shift production towards a cost-effective approach and safe environment. Hence, also his interest in designing processes capable of enhancing manufacturing optimally and production ofvalue-added industrial chemicals.

Area of Specialization: Renewable energy, biochemical engineering, heterogeneous catalysis.
