Oluwaseun holds a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, with specialty in in the area Veterinary Public Health and Preventive Medicine. He graduated with distinctions from the University of Ibadan. He was involved with different organizations, such as Nigerian Model of United Nations (NigMUNS), University of Ibadan Chapter and Corps’ Health Team, a community development scheme of the National Youth Service Corps, both involved with programs that ensured safe and healthy environment for both human and animal population. He was also a part of a project which studied the environmental impact of abattoir effluents on water bodies in Bodija, Ibadan, Oyo State, in 2015. His publications focus on environmental contamination of meat markets and abattoir environment with fungal organisms, due to unhygienic practices by meat vendors and butchers. He is a lecturer and researcher in the Aquatic and Wildlife Medicine Unit, Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Oluwaseun is currently on his PhD, with research focus on ecological modelling of environmental factors which supports the proliferation of reservoir hosts, and thus, the spread of re-emerging viral zoonoses in Nigeria.
- Isolation, characterization and antimicrobial sensitivity of bacterial organisms from wild animals and fish in different game markets of South-West, Nigeria. The aim of this study is to assess, quantify and characterize microbial contamination of specific markets for wild animals and fish in different parts of Nigeria, and to check for antibiotic resistant genes in these wild populations, as an implication on human health.
- Determination of specific reservoir hosts for Monkeypox in Nigeria using ecological modelling. Different emerging and re-emerging disease have been reported in different regions of Nigeria, most with zoonotic tendencies, one of which is Monkeypox. Monkeypox outbreaks have been persistent over the last decade, but with little correlation to any specific definitive reservoir hosts as major sources of spread to humans. Hence, this study will be aimed at investigating the prevalence of these viruses in previously incriminated wild animal species and extension to other unsuspected reservoir hosts, which may be involved in the maintenance of monkeypox in selected regions of Nigeria.
