Research scientists / postdoctoral researchers:


Victor Oghogho Ebuele

Victor obtained his M.Sc. degree in Environmental Chemistry from Bangor University, Wales in 2012. The focus of his M.Sc. dissertation was to explore the speciation of phosphorus in different environmental matrices. He also explored the electrochemical performance of the phosphate-sensitive cobalt electrode in detecting ortho-phosphate ions (H2PO4) in ammonium lactate- acetic acid (AL-AA) extracts of soil. This was done in collaboration with the electrochemistry group Bangor University under the supervision of Dr Chris Gwenin. Victor has just completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry under the supervision of Dr Vera Thoss with his research focused on the chemical and molecular characterization of phosphorus species in environmental samples (soil and plants). This was done using conventional extraction techniques and advanced spectroscopic techniques such as the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and the Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-OES). Victor also has a lot of experience in the use of various analytical instruments.
