My research activities includes the following;

2004-to- 2012: Centre for Basic Space Science, Nsukka

National Moon Sighting Project

A pioneer member of the technical team of the National Moon Sighting Committee. This committee was established by the Centre for Basic Space Science under the supervision of the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) as requested by the National Moon Sighting Committee headed by the Sultan of Sokoto,

Microwave Propagation in the Troposphere Project

This is a research carried out by the center using our own data generated from a network of automatic weather station Vantage Vue Pro 2 Davis instrument installed at various heights at different locations selected based on geographical vegetation and climate in Nigeria. The projected has over time yielded many research publications ranging from undergraduate projects to postgraduate theses that produces a reasonable number of PhDs, and articles in high index international reputable journals.

Nigerian Environmental and Climatic Observation Project NECOP

NECOP now call Atmospheric Monitoring Equipment Network (AMEN) under the umbrella of Tropospheric Data Acquisition Network (TRODAN) project is design towards fulfilling the Centre’s research goals in the lower atmosphere by providing a real time data to the scientist in Nigeria and Diaspora to be able to study our local meteorological and climatic conditions using in situ measurements.

Installations of NECOP/TRODAN Equipment

Participated in installations of equipment for the projects mentioned above in different universities in Nigeria through collaboration; these installations were carried-out in six Geo-Political zones in the country: Uthman Dan Fodio University, Sokoto. Federal University of Technology, Yola., Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, University of Jos, Plateau., Federal University of Technology, Akure among others. In addition, I lead a team that installed an automatic weather stations at ESUT, Enugu, ATBU, Bauchi, Ogbomoso, LAUTECH and UNIAGRIC, Makurdi among others in Nigeria.
