ODEJOBI Odetunji Ajadi B.Sc.(Ife, Nigeria); PhD(Aston, U.K.)

Dr. Odejobi's research is in the area of Computing and Intelligent Systems Engineering with focus on speech and language engineering. Dr. Odejobi was a Visiting Scholar to the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia as a fellow of the United Nations University International Institute of Software Technology (UNU-IIST). He was a Commonwealth Scholar (British) at the University of Aston in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Dr. Odejobi also had visiting scholar positions at the Phonetics Laboratory of the University of Oxford, Oxford, England and The Centre for Speech Technology Research (CSTR), of the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland, United Kingdom. Dr. Odejobi was a Marie Curie Research Fellow on the Constraint Reasoning Extended to Enhance Decision (CREED) Project at the Cork Constraint Computation Centre (4C), of the University College Cork (UCC), Cork, Ireland (The Republic). He was a Research Academic in the same institution between 2008 and 2009. Dr. Odejobi is a consultant to a number of National and International organisations. For example, he served as a consultant to the African Languages Technologies Initiatives (Alt-I) on the Microsoft Vista Operating System Localisation Project. He is currently a Senior Lecturer In the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.
