Multifunctional Materials Research Group

Dr. Obada


In a research space where scientific concepts that were once domiciled in laboratories are being transformed into functional materials and devices, Dr. David Olubiyi Obada’s research group has concentrated on the development, characterization, and testing of multifunctional materials that are naturally existing and specifically engineered. Over the years, the group has been dedicated to engineering and transforming these materials for use in fundamental and advanced research and to fulfill societal needs.
Our research focuses on catalysis, mechanical and crack behaviour of advanced materials such as perovskites, kaolin-based membranes, hydroxyapatite scaffolds, etc. We are most interested in their remarkable physical, chemical, and mechanical properties such as density, porosity, homogenous and heterogeneous morphologies, robust hardness and fracture toughness, and unprecedented barrier properties.
