Damilare Samuel Ojo
Damilare Samuel Ojo is a PhD student at B-PHOT under the supervision of Prof. Francis Berghmans and Dr. Sidney Goossens. He is researching the instrumentation of mechatronics systems with fiber bragg grating sensors for load monitoring, failure prediction and design optimization. Damilare is part of the optical fiber sensing team for the SBO project FiberMech aimed at unlocking the potential of both quasi-distributed and distributed strain and temperature measurement in mechatronic systems at lower cost/time and improved accuracy with respect to conventional strain gauges and thermal sensors.
Damilare obtained his bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics Engineering at Federal University Oye Ekiti (Nigeria, 2016), before working as a project lead in the energy/utility industry specialised in the implementation of operation technologies for managing the distribution of electricity such as GIS and SCADA systems. He then completed a joint master’s Erasmus Mundus degree in Mechatronics Engineering at Nile University (Egypt), École Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et des Microtechniques (France), and Universidad de Oviedo (Spain) in 2023.
