What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research

I’m a rising young professional in environmental (aquatic) science with research interests in water quality management, wastewater treatment, antimicrobial resistance, and fish health management. Currently, I am working as a graduate assistant at the Federal University of Agriculture in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria.

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program

My reasons for participating in the ASAPbio Fellows program are to learn and apply the preprint method of science communication to my research and aquatic science. Secondly, to master the rudiments of how science is being effectively communicated using preprints and other forms of dissemination medium.

What are you excited about in science communication?

The core value of impactful research work is the ability to communicate your research findings to people of diverse backgrounds effectively. I am excited that science communication helps promote scientific literacy; people can understand scientific terms, concepts, theories, etc. Thus, they can better evaluate information and help develop scientific endeavours.
