Institute for Sustainable Development
Miss Oluwatoyin Ogunjinmi is a soil scientist, she’s currently running her Ph.D program in soil chemistry at the department of soil science, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife also received her M.Tech. Agronomy with distinction from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso. She is a member of International Humic Substances Society (IHSS), the society whose focus is on bringing together scientists in the coal, soil, and water sciences with interests in humic substances.
She’s currently engaged with the Institute for Sustainable Development at the First Technical University, Ibadan, Nigeria as a research fellow and lecturer. Her researches focus on the application of different analytical equipment to the understanding of soil nutrient dynamics and application of different soil amendment (organic and inorganic fertilizers) for soil amelioration and greenhouse gas emission reduction. The aim is the understanding of the mechanisms involve in soil quality, fertility and greenhouse gases transformation. In addition, her interest is also pointed to the understanding of the mechanisms by which roots interact with the soil environment to influence plant productivity and soil processes important to global climate, such as cycling of nitrogen and carbon and formation of soil organic matter.
