SCU gains its first QCIF eResearch Analyst

6 April 2023

QCIF eResearch Analyst Dr Adewuyi (Ade) Ayodele Adeyinka has moved from the University of Southern Queensland to Southern Cross University.

Both UniSQ and SCU are QCIF Members. SCU joined QCIF in May last year as an Affiliate Member. Ade is SCU’s first QCIF eResearch Analyst, although his title there is QCIF Digital Research Analyst.

QCIF Skills Development Manager Dr Mark Crowe said it is great to see QCIF eResearch Analysts moving between QCIF Member institutions. “It’s wonderful that an eResearch Analyst from a longstanding QCIF Member university (UniSQ) is sharing his skills with a relatively new QCIF Member (SCU) and helping it to expand its research support services," said Mark.

Ade started work at SCU on 16 January this year and moved from Springfield to the Gold Coast to enjoy a coastal lifestyle.

“I decided to join SCU because it gives me the opportunity to lay the foundation of sound research data management practice and I love the coastal life,” said Ade.

“My aim is to set researchers up for a win in their research careers by using my statistical knowledge to facilitate the use of appropriate techniques and provide quality training in statistical and computational techniques.”

Ade aims to achieve this through Researcher Hour (also known as Hacky Hour at other QCIF Member universities) — a weekly lunch-time online meetup during which researchers are free to seek help with technical challenges they are having in their research.

SCU’s Researcher Hour will be held on Wednesdays, 12pm–1pm (see QCIF’s Hacky Hour webpage for more information). Joining Ade, representatives from SCU’s Library and Technology Services will also be at hand at the meetup to assist researchers.

Ade has a PhD from UniSQ 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 15 years of experience in teaching and research at the university level as well as industry experience in banking.  

SCU researchers are welcome to contact Ade for advice on research data management, storage and research computing, support and training:

For similar advice, UniSQ researchers are welcome to email Richard Young, Ade’s QCIF eResearch Analyst replacement at UniSQ, via
