Olajire OLANRELE

Lecturer II
"Dr. Olajire Samson Olanrele is a Lecturer/Researcher in the Department of Chemical Sciences, Mountain Top University, Ogun State, Nigeria. He bagged his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering (with Speciality in Materials Physics and Chemistry) in 2020 from the Institute of Metal Research, University of Science and Technology of China, China. This was preceded by M.Sc. degree in Inorganic Chemistry obtained in 2013 from the University of Calabar, Calabar, Nigeria. His B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Pure Chemistry was acquired in 2009 from the Department of Chemical Sciences, Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, Nigeria. Due to his passion for education, he enrolled for and was awarded a Postgraduate Diploma degree in Education in 2015 from the National Open University of Nigeria, Lagos, Nigeria. During his Ph.D. studies, he was a beneficiary of several awards and scholarships, some of which are: CAS-TWAS President’s Ph.D. Fellowship jointly sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) and the World Academy of Science (TWAS), China (2016-2020), Institute of Metal Research Ph.D. Scholarship, China (2016-2020), Institute of Metal Research Excellent Student Award (2020). His research interests are on heterogeneous catalysis, computational and theoretical chemistry, first principle calculations of nanostructured carbon based electrocalatysts for energy conversion, energy storage and environmental protection (such as: ORR in fuel cell, OER and HER in water splitting device, CO2RR in Li-CO2 batteries, and shuttle effect remediation in Li-S batteries). Dr. Olanrele has several highly rated peer-reviewed journal articles to his credit and has also presented several conference papers in international scientific meetings. He is a member of the Chemical Society of Nigeria (CSN).
