Short Profile

Oludotun Olusegun ADELUSI, a Christian, is an indigene of Ilogbo-Ekiti, Ekiti State and was born in Owode Yewa town of Ogun State on the 29th of July, 1986. He attended Army Children School III, Area Community High School and Owode Secondary School, all in Owode town for his primary and secondary educations.  He proceeded to the University of Agriculture Abeokuta in 2001 for his Pre-degree and degree programme, bagging a Bachelor of Agriculture in 2008. After completing his Youth Service, he returned to the same institution for his Masters in 2009 and completed his Doctorate degree in Ruminant Nutrition in 2014.

Oludotun joined the services of FUNAAB as a Lecturer II in October 2017 where he is contributing his quota in the Department of Animal Nutrition as a lecturer and researcher. He has published 27 articles in peer-reviewed Journals and 10 articles in Refereed Conference Proceedings. He is involved with student supervision at both undergraduate (17 to date) and postgraduate levels (M. Agric. - 14; PhD - 1).

Oludotun is a 2020 Laureate of the OnePlanet Fellowship for African Agricultural Scientists in Climate Change Research being executed by African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) and Agropolis Foundation. His research interest lies in the manipulation of rumen environment for lower methane production. He also studies the utilization of phytochemicals, browse species and agro-industrial by-products by ruminants. He had completed researches on the use of coconut and palm kernel oils for methane reduction in cattle.

He belongs to many professional and academic associations such as Nigeria Institute of Animal Science, Nigeria Society for Animal Production, Animal Science Association of Nigeria. He is also a member of International Goat Association (IGA).
