Ijoma, GN, PhD Environmental Science (ISI-WoS H-index 4; Google Scholar H-index:5)
Dr. Grace N. Ijoma worked as a senior lecturer in Biotechnology at the Pearson Institute of Higher Education for over 8 years, where she taught undergraduate students a variety of core subjects such as Cellular Biology, Agricultural Science and Biotechnology, Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology, and Bioethics. Prior to that, she spent over 6 years working in various biotechnology-based industries such as agricultural feed, pharmaceuticals, breweries, vitamin pre-mixes, fruit juice, and milk canning, with a particular emphasis on quality control and the ancillary waste water treatment involved for manufacturing purposes.
She is currently a Senior Researcher at the University of South Africa, where she supervises at least 14 postgraduates (Honours, Masters, and PhDs) in research projects she designed with the goal of providing solutions for industries and the environment relevant to the Sub-Saharan Africa narrative. Her personal research focus is on the incorporation of Omics technologies into industrial bioprocesses, such as agriculture, agro and food processing, alternative energy (biogas and biodiesel), and wastewater treatment to reduce energy usage and waste generation. She hopes the use of biocatalysis in industrial chemical processes will proactively address environmental pollution using these biological mitigation strategies.
Her research interests are diverse and include bioprospecting of niche environments in search of these enzymes and useful biological products.
