I'm a DPhil candidate at the Department of Computer Science, working with the human centred computing research theme. I graduated in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science (Bells University of Technology, Nigeria) and received my master's degree in Computer Science and Systems (University of Washinton, USA) in 2014. Although my background is in core computer science, my interest lies not just in the development of technology but also in understanding human experiences and social factors that influence how we interact with computer and information systems. In between my degrees, I worked as a Teaching Assistant in Nigeria, teaching undergraduate courses such as Programming Methodologies, Operating Systems, and Computers and Society.

My current research is concerned with the impact of human, socio-organisational factors on cyber security practices in software development process. This contributes broadly to human-computer interaction in application software development and secure software practices and experiences.
