Summary of Profile
Olugbenga trained as a Computer Scientist at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Ilorin, before completing a M.Sc Computer Science postgraduate training at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He also has a postgraduate advanced certificate in English from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York, USA. He won a Fulbright fellowship that spanned 2010-2011 for his PhD research in the United States of America.During his joint PhD training at Covenant University , Nigeria and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University, United States of America, Olugbenga developed an Anopheles Spatially-Explicit Computational Model for the metapopulation dynamics of Anopheles mosquitoes towards the control of malaria. The results of the simulation and modeling of his model have been tested and validated with field data.
Olugbenga is interested in developing and implementing computational methods used in health research especially in the control of communicable diseases. He is particularly interested in communicable and infectious diseases that affect the African population. His research interests centers around artificial intelligence, expert systems, computational health, computational biology, software engineering, computational modeling and simulation, bioinformatics, application of computational techniques and methods to solving problem caused by infectious and communicable diseases. Olugbenga’s present research focuses on the development of bioinformatics and informatics tools for the control of diseases such as Ebola, Malaria and HIV, amongst others.
Furthermore, as a result of Olugbenga’s research commitments, he has taught bioinformatics, computational biology, mobile computing, mathematical methods, computer programming in C++, Data structures, Discrete Structures and Compiler Construction at Covenant University for about ten years and supervised both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Olugbenga is presently a faculty and researcher at the Department of Computer Science, Federal University Lokoja, Nigeria.
Olugbenga is currently a member of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). He was previously the vice-president of the International Society for Computational Biology-Regional Student Group (ISCB-RSG-WA) West Africa. He is a member of the African Society for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (ASBCB).He is also a member of the Nigerian Computer Society (NCS).He plays prominent role in the development of informatics tools in health, and bioinformatics in the scientific community. Prior to this, he was the webmaster of the Regional Student Group (West African region), which is affiliated to the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).
