Howdy! Ogbonnaya Bassey was born in Nigeria. As a little child, he caught the passion for engineering and mathematics. He obtained a Bachelor’s Degree (First Class Honors) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, where he graduated as the best student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and College of Engineering in 2013. He did a national service where he taught Physics to students in Nigerian rural area. Just before the national service, he joined a renewable energy startup – SolarKobo, where he designed embedded systems for smart electrical energy system. The board he designed for SolarKobo won the single board challenge organised by Intel and ITU – UN’s agent for ICT and Telecom in 2015.
In the Spring of 2016, he joined Texas A&M University as a Ph.D. student. His research interests are in cyber-physical systems, power system state estimation, synchrophasor applications, microgrid and embedded systems.
