Dr. Bolaji James Adesokan

Dr. Bolaji James Adesokan obtained BSc First Class in Mathematics at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He then proceeded to University of Capetown, South Africa through the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) scholarship and obtained his postgraduate diploma in Mathematical Sciences. During his study in South Africa, Dr. Bolaji also received the eminent African Mathematics Millennium Science Initiative (AMMSI) postgraduate scholarship.

Dr. Bolaji received the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Master’s Scholarship and pursued his double master’s degree in Industrial Mathematics at the Johannes Kepler University, Austria and the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. Dr. Bolaji worked as a research assistant at the University of Magdeburg in Germany where he worked on computational methods of virus dynamics before proceeding to Technical University of Denmark where he bagged his doctorate degree. His thesis focused on Numerical modeling of micro electrochemical systems.

Bolaji is a senior researcher at the department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, Center for Intelligent Drug Delivery and Sensing Using Micro containers and Nano mechanics (IDUN), Technical University of Denmark, Denmark. His research focuses on modeling and simulation of phenomena governed by Partial differential equations (PDEs) with focus on electrochemical systems and flow in centrifugal microfluidics. He is also interested in preconditioners for PDE constrained optimization. His focus is to develop smart computational techniques in solving large-scale problems through PDE constrained optimization. Bolaji has published in reputable journals in Applied Mathematics and Computational Chemistry.

Dr. Sunday Chukwudi Okoro

Sunday Chukwudi Okoro is a Researcher with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. He gained his bachelor’s degree in Industrial Chemistry from the Federal university of Technology Owerri (2010) before obtaining a Master’s degree in Research Chemistry from the University of Eastern Finland (2013). He became the first student to graduate with a record grade of 5/5 (Distinction) in the International Master’s Degree Programme for Research Chemists, under which he was granted a scholarship. He has just completed his PhD degree studies at the Technical University of Denmark following a joint research study between the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Department of Biochemical and Chemical Engineering.

Sunday’s research interest is rooted in the degradation of materials under extreme conditions. He has conducted internationally recognized studies leading to scientific publication in ISI-ranked journals. His research results have also been presented in international conferences to leading experts in his field.

Currently, he is working towards the use of mathematical modelling tools to understand and predict corrosion of materials in various applications.
