Dr Adewuyi (Ade) Ayodele Adeyinka has joined QCIF as an eResearch Analyst based at the University of Southern Queensland.
Ade has a PhD from USQ in Finance and is a specialist in the application of financial and statistical models in proffering solutions to climate risk in agriculture.
He has more than a decade of experience in teaching and research at the university level as well as industry experience in banking.
Ade joins the eResearch team in USQ’s Office of Research where he will work with Dr Francis Gacenga, USQ’s Manager (eResearch), in concert with other research support teams at the QCIF Member institution. Ade will assist with research computing service delivery, user support and training at USQ.
Ade first connected with QCIF by attending a few of our Software Carpentry workshops at USQ and Griffith University.
“I found that there was a huge gap in what researchers (including myself) knew was possible and what was available for research,” said Ade.
He became a helper at other USQ-based Software Carpentry workshops, which led him to his new QCIF role.
“Joining the USQ eResearch team will advance my research skills and give me the opportunity to train other researchers in research infrastructures, principles, models and skills needed to produce high-quality reproducible research output more easily,” he said.
QCIF Skills Development Manager Dr Mark Crowe said: “Ade joining our eResearch Analyst team is a great outcome for both QCIF and USQ. His enthusiasm for training and his experience as a researcher make him ideally qualified to support his colleagues at USQ.”
QCIF CEO John Bancroft added: “I’m delighted to have Ade join us and bring his experience and skills to help us deliver excellent support to our Members’ researchers.”
Before moving to USQ in 2009, Ade, who is originally from Nigeria, was a Research and Teaching Assistant at the University of Botswana.
“Living in Australia has made me a truly global citizen as I have been able to interact with people from different cultures across the world,” said Ade.
