Background My area of specialization is Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering. I have been lecturing Geotechnical Engineering in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering since 1997, and I am currently under assessment for the position of Professor. I have 51 publications in highly reputable journals and conference proceedings. I have published 30 journal articles with 4 articles accepted for publication, 15 refereed conference proceedings and 2 monograph/technical report. I am the leading author in 35 of the publications. My research and publications have addressed issues of geotechnical characterization of tropical geologic media (soil subsurface profile), estimation of contaminant transport and fate parameters for the assessment and remediation of contaminated sites, ecosystem and environmental effects of oil spills and leakage from underground pipelines/storage tanks on the shoreline of large water bodies such as the ocean, riverbeds, and the soil subsurface and geoenvironmental effects of mine tailings mixtures. I serve as reviewer for several high impact journals, including; i. Journal of Cleaner Production (ELSEVIER), ii. Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment (SPRINGER),iii. Journal of Zhejiang University, China-SCIENCE A (ZUSA) (Applied Physics & Engineering) and iv. Polish Journal of Environmental Studies (PJOES) ___________________________________________ https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=se2VITwAAAAJ&hl=en https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Oluwapelumi_Ojuri
