Busola Oronti was born in Ikire, Nigeria. She obtained her Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, majoring in Electronics. She later proceeded for her master’s degree, also in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (Communications option), at the University of Lagos, Nigeria.
Prior to her resumption at the University of Warwick for her PhD program, she had worked as a Laboratory Scientist, and had served as the Head of all laboratories in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta, a position she held for close to twelve years. She is currently a lecturer at the Department of Mechatronics Engineering in the same University.
She is a Registered Engineer (R.Engr.) with the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN), and had served as an executive committee member in her local branch of The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), and the Association of Professional Women Engineers of Nigeria (APWEN), where she held several sensitive positions. She is also a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) and the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD).
She has worked severally outside of the university environment as a System Support Engineer with an Internet Service Provider (ISP), an IT Instructor in a non-governmental organization, as well as a Line Manager in a packaging company. Her current research interests include the development of medical devices for low resource settings (LRS), applications of Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), and the Internet of Things (IoT) in the prevention, diagnosis and management of cardiovascular diseases.
Also, she has published a number of peer reviewed research papers in reputable journals. Her hobbies include reading, writing, singing, meeting new people, exploring the word of God and relaxing with family and friends.
