Assistant Lecturer
Diploma, B.Sc (Hons) and M.Sc. in Applied Microbiology, Microbiology and Environmental and Public Health Microbiology from the University of Benin

Mr. Nosa Omoregbe Obayagbona MNES is an assistant lecturer in the Department of Environmental Management and Toxicology. His research activities focuses mainly on bacteriological and physicochemical indicators of water, air and soil pollution, usage of bio stimulation and bioaugmention approaches in the bioremediation of petroleum polluted environments, determination of the antimicrobial activity of plant extracts , microbial quality of food and microbial degradation of organic and inorganic xenobiotics. He has had extensive laboratory experience in environmental microbiology, physicochemistry, food microbiology and mycology. Currently, he has seventeen (17) journal articles and a conference paper to his credit.. He is a member of the Nigerian Environmental Society (NES).
