About

I am a PhD student under the supervision of Gianluca Stringhini in the Information Security Group of the Computer Science department at University College London (UCL). Before joining UCL, I was in the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering at Covenant University, Nigeria.

In addition to my research tasks, I assist Gianluca Stringhini and Emiliano De Cristofaro in lab sessions for Computer Security II, a module in the UCL MSc in Information Security degree. In the past, I also assisted Nicolas Courtois in Applied Cryptography lab sessions. I co-supervise some student projects alongside Gianluca, the main supervisor.

On the arty side of things, I enjoy sketching and doodling interesting subjects, like this pine cone, Aladdin's lamp, and this vintage microphone. I also sketched a comic panel for a cybersecurity visualization competition.
