Short Bio

Wole Soboyejo was educated at King’s College London and The University of Cambridge before coming to the United States in 1988 to become a research scientist at The McDonnell Douglas Research Labs in St. Louis, MO. In 1992, he worked briefly as a Principal Research Engineer at the Edison Welding Institute before joining the engineering faculty of The Ohio State University in Columbus , OH. From 1997 to 1998, he was a Visiting Professor in the departments of mechanical engineering and materials science and engineering at MIT. In 1999 he was appointed as a Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University.

Profesor Soboyejo served for three years as the President of the African University of Science and Technology (AUST) from 2012-2014. He is a Fellow of the American Soceity of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the Nigerian Academy of Science. Professor Soboyejo is the author of three textbooks and more than 350 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He is also the editor of 19 books or conference proceedings on materials science and engineering. His research focuses on materials for health, energy and the environment.
