Oluwatoyin Jegede


I have background in political science and metallurgy. I am currently in my third year of PhD in the school of chemical and process engineering. My research is on low gravity solidification of metals. In my spare time i pursue activities that encourage more participation of females in STEM based fields and education of the girl child especially in Nigeria where i come from. I lalso like to consider myself a disability advocate as i am very passionate about equity for those living with one form of challenge or the other being one myself.

Research interests

My research is on rapid solidification of copper under micro gravity conditions. I am specifically using drop tube processing to study how micro gravity processing  affect solidification structure of metal alloys. Reseaches of this nature is key in the development and improvement of materials to drive new and existing technologies.
