Area(s) of Specialization/Research Interests

Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology/Microbial Physiology


Dr. Gboyega E. ADEBAMI is currently a Lecturer II in the Department of Biological Sciences (Microbiology Programme), Mountain Top University, Ogun State, Nigeria. His research interests and specializations are in Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology/Microbial Physiology, and Bioenergy. He holds a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Microbiology from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-ife (formerly University of Ife) in 2007 and a Master of Science degree (M.Sc.) in Industrial Microbiology from the University of Ibadan in 2012. He completed his Doctor of Philosophy degree (Ph.D.) at the same institution in 2021 on biodiesel production from waste and non-edible feedstocks using fungal isolates. His research is broadly focused on harnessing microbial metabolites production for industrial applications, with an interest in the production of microbial enzymes, exopolysaccharides, bioflocculants, antibiotics, and nanoparticle biosynthesis. His other key area of research is on efficient biofuel production, particularly biodiesel from waste, using improved microbial strains through genetic and metabolic engineering. Also, research on second and third generations’ biofuels using economically viable lignocellulosic biomass for bioethanol production, and non-edible/waste oil, oleaginous microbes, and algae oils for biodiesel production is of utmost interest to him. He is an awardee of The World Academy of Science for Research and Advanced Training (TWAS R & AT). Dr. Gboyega is a teacher to the core and also a co-author of scholarly articles in some of the most reputable international journals. He is happily married, and the union is blessed.
