Landmark University

Abiola Ezekiel TAIWO holds a Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Chemical Engineering from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology and Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria. He was a recipient of the National Research Foundation and the World Academy of Science (NRF-TWAS) African Renaissance Doctoral Fellowship for his doctoraldegree at Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa. TAIWO has received aninvitation to participate at both national and international conferences. He is a registered member of the professional body in Engineering; South African Institute of Chemical Engineer (SAIChE), Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE, London), Council for the regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) and Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE). Taiwo was awarded the prize for best case study in the field of Green and Sustainable Chemistry in the framework of the year 2017 Elsevier Foundation – TWAS Sustainability Case Studies Competition. He presented his award at the first TWAS Young Affiliate Network (TYAN) flagged off in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. Taiwo has publications in both national and international journal archive.

Areas of Specialization: My research interest spurs around bioprocessing engineering, renewable energy, high-pressure technology, process optimization and technoeconomic feasibility studies.
