About me

  • I am a community health physician completing my in training at University
    College Hospital Ibadan, Nigeria and am pursuing a PhD at the Department of
    Global Public Health, Karolinska Institutet. My areas of research
    experience include child health, implementation research and delivery of
    oxygen therapy. I have led the implementation of pulse oximetry and oxygen
    therapy interventions in secondary level hospitals in south west Nigeria, and
    through Oxygen for Life Initiative—a non for profit organization in
    Nigeria—I have been supporting the scale-up of pulse oximetry and oxygen
    systems in Nigeria through training and advocacy. My current research
    interest include treatment adherence for childhood pneumonia, oxygen therapy
    in primary health care and, childhood nutrition and vaccination.

  • My current research work is focused on care-seeking and treatment adherence
    for childhood pneumonia in northern and southern Nigeria, as part of the
    INSPIRING Project (GSK-Save the Children funded, partnered with University
    College London, Murdoch Children’s Research Institute Australia, Johns
    Hopkins University USA, University College Hospital Ibadan Nigeria, and
    Karolinska Institute Sweden). I also lead a usability assessment of a novel
    low pressure oxygen storage device in Nigeria, and actively contribute to the
    Every Breath Counts research group.
