Dr Benjamin A. Oyegbile
Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Short Bio

Dr. Oyegbile holds a PhD in Environmental Science and is currently a recipient of the prestigious NRF-TWAS Postdoctoral research fellowship at the Process Engineering department, Stellenbosch University, South Africa. Prior to this current position, he was involved in the reasearch activities at the Chair of Minerals Processing, Brandenburg University of Technology, Cottbus, Germany and holds a faculty position at the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Elizade University, Ilara-Mokin, Nigeria.

Research Interests

His research interest revolves around fine particle separation using physicochemical processes—wet agglomeration, agglomeration/flocculation reactor design and optimization as well as experimental and computational modelling of the hydrodynamics of fine particle separation. His futute career plan is to deepen his research skills in his core research areas and help in the training of future generation of professionals in the field of Environmental Process Engineering.
