Dr. Damilola Daramola is the Assistant Director for Technical Business Development at the Center for Electrochemical Engineering Research. Daramola has been at Ohio University for 13 years: first as an undergraduate in Chemical Engineering, then as a PhD candidate in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate. Daramola has also been involved in other extra-curricular activities at the Russ College – as a Robe Leadership Institute Scholar, a member of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and Theta Tau. Daramola’s interests lie where quantum chemistry, material science and reaction engineering intersect and he has 5 peer-reviewed publications in these research areas. When he isn’t playing around with molecular models, he is watching Cleveland sports, Arsenal Football Club and the Nigerian National team or reading history books and autobiographies.

Research Interests: Quantum Chemistry Calculations, Material Science, Surface Science, Solid-Gas Interface

All Degrees Earned: Ph.D., Chemical Engineering, Ohio University, 2011. B.S., Chemical Engineering, Ohio University, 2004.
