Ikubanni Stephen Oluwole Profile


Physical Sciences/Physics


Ikubanni Stephen is a Physicist. He is one of the pioneer members offaculty in Landmark University. He undertook his undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Ilorin, where he won some awards. He recently bagged a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Space Physics with interest in Aeronomy and specializing in Space Weather effects on radio wave propagation, ionospheric variability and modelling. With a good track of publications in reputable journals, from which he has presented at learned scientific conferences within and outside Nigeria, Stephen stands as out a young researcher destined to contribute substantially to unraveling some mysteries about our life-friendly planet and other planets. He has served meritoriously as invited reviewer for some of these reputable specialized journals (such as "Journal of Geophysical Research - Space Physics", "Earth, Planet and Space", "Annali de Geofisica") and willing to serve again and again for the love of science. He is a public speaker, a motivator and a science advocate. He is lover of music and creative art, which he engages in at leisure.
