Dr Oluwole Oyewande obtained his bachelor and master of science degrees from the University of Ibadan. He was awarded a scholarship of the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics for the 2001-2002 advanced postgraduate diploma in condensed matter physics. After successfully completing the intense training program, he was appointed as a research assistant (Wissenschaeftlicher mitarbeiter-BAT1/2) at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, Georg-August University of Goettingen, Germany. He started his doctoral thesis research at the same time. This culminated to his being awarded a doctor of natural sciences degree (Dr. rer. nat.) of the University of Goettingen in 2006. He did a brief spell (about three years) as a research fellow, and lecturer in mathematics at the Manchester Metropolitan University, England, before finally returning back to Nigeria in 2009 in the employ of the University of Ibadan. He teaches and research theoretical physics. He specialises on mathematical modelling and statistical physics of disordered/complex systems.
He has been on sabbatical leave from the Department of Physics, University of Ibadan, since Dec. 1, 2017.
