Maje join School of Chemical and Process Engineering, the University of Leeds as a Ph.D. student in the year 2016 after completing his MSc in Chemical Engineering from the same University in 2015. Maje holds BSc in Chemistry from Bayero University, Kano, Nigeria. He also held a two-year National Diploma in Science Laboratory Technology from Hussaini Adamu Federal Polytechnic, Kazaure, Nigeria. He is a member of Royal Society of Chemistry (MRSC), Member American Chemical Society (MACS), Associate Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChemE), Member Energy Institute (MEI), Member Australian Colloid and Interface Science (MACIS), Member Society of Petroleum Engineers (MSPE), and Member Chemical Society of Nigeria (MCSN). 

Currently, Maje is working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the School of Chemical and Process Engineering, University of Leeds, in the area of nanotechnology-based enhanced oil recovery analysis. Prior to his Ph.D. Maje worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry, Federal University Dutse, Nigeria. 



Research interests

Maje has his research interest in nanotechnology for emerging energy applications. His current project focusses on developing multifunctional nanomaterials and nanocomposites with modified properties for enhanced oil recovery under harsh reservoir conditions. His research interest also involved the production of low-cost adsorbents for wastewater treatment: removal of unwanted organic contaminants and heavy metals from industrial wastewater.
