As an engineering graduate, Jeffery has always been passionate about translating theoretical concepts taught in classrooms into solutions which can solve problems around him. During his degree in Electrical Power Systems Engineering from the African Leadership College in Mauritius, Jeffrey used the techniques he learnt in classrooms to create affordable prosthetic arms for people in Nigeria.
Jeffery plans to dedicate his career to solve the challenges of energy access in Nigeria. During the last year, Jeffery installed micro-grids in rural communities across Nigeria. He believes that decentralised power solutions hold the key to solving the country's power crisis and ensuring clean energy access to all.
At Oxford, Jeffrey hopes to build on his theoretical and practical understanding of future energy systems with a focus on how policies and economics can enable their deployment. He intends to lead Nigeria's ministry of power to a sustainable future.
