Ayomide Ajayi

University of Lancaster

I am a native of South Western part of Nigeria. I graduated from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Nigeria in 1997 and 2002 with a bachelor’s and master of technology degrees in Computer Engineering and Computer Science. Prior to enrolling in the doctoral study in January, 2012 at Lancaster University, I have spent thirteen years as teaching assistant and Lecturer in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at my Alma Mata. I have served in various positions as member of departmental and faculty board of examiners, acting head of department as well as other numerous academic and administrative capacities during this period. My research interest spans the fields of control engineering, fault tolerant systems, telecommunications and computer networks. Furthermore, I have garnered a wide range of experience in teaching undergraduate students in many courses including hardware engineering, instrumentations, software engineering, compiler construction, mobile communications, digital logic and assembly language programming. Presently, I am currently working on the performance of rural wireless mesh network deployment in terms of scalability, data availability, network resilience and reliability. Particularly, I am investigating a caching method that can be adapted to the rural specifics and requirements for a cost-effective solution that also incur minimal communication overhead of implementation to conserve network resources such as bandwidth and energy. My key interests are the development of a framework that can achieve a few of these goals.
Being a motivator and vanguard of change; my dynamic personality, intuitive communication skills, and a creative intellect have enabled me to steer the headship of my department over two years with proven records of achievements. I have ten publications presently as well as co-authored three books. In terms of progress on the doctoral study, I have two papers already accepted for presentations in due course later in the year. However, I am concertedly working on the experimentation aspect of my work on the caching adaptation for rural WMN deployment scenario. Knowing that no one is an island of knowledge, I have collaborations with a few researches across the globe and also willing to partner with more people in this regards.
