Profile

Dr. Babatunde J. Falaye completed his doctorate degree in June 2017, at Escuela Superior de Física y Matemáticas (ESFM), Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN), Mexico with two major awards: the best doctoral thesis of IPN and outstanding postgraduate student of the year 2017. His Master of Science degree and Bachelor of Science degrees were obtained from the University of Ilorin in February 2014 and July 2010 respectively. Not only did he graduated as the best student in Physics in the year 2010, but he was also a University scholar throughout his undergraduate schooling.

Dr. Falaye has published numerous articles most of which are indexed in the web of science. His articles have been cited more than 1000 times on google scholar with h-index of 20 making him one of the most cited researchers in the University.  

Dr. Falaye is one of the Co-founders of the Nigerian Society of Physical Sciences (NSPS). The association is a nonprofit and nonpolitical organization of Physical Scientists incorporated by the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria on January 9, 2019 (CAC/IT/NO 123135). The main objective of the Society is to promote the research and study of Physical Sciences in Nigeria and provide effective programs in its support. Read more at https://nsps.org.ng/ 

Dr. Falaye is the pioneer Director of FULafia Directorate of Management Information System (MIS). He has been playing a crucial role in ensuring that all activities of the University are online-based. Even though he has recently developed some interest in web-based applications, his focus and research interest in Physics has not changed 

His research interests focus on Mathematical Physics; Foundation of Quantum mechanics and Quantum Information Theory (QIT). Within the framework of Quantum Mechanics, he has been working on solutions of differential equations, wave equations, and con finement influence of external fields on particles with applications to atomic and molecular systems. Some already published results can be found in Physical Review E 93 (2016) 053201, Annals of Physics 353 (2015) 282, etc.  

Within the last few years, has also been working on QIT. His interest has been in scrutinizing applications of quantum entanglement in various quantum information processing. Specific cally, examining the role of quantum noise and that of quantum entanglement in quantum information processing and quantum metrology. Some already published results include Phys. Lett. A 381 (2017) 581, Scienti c Reports 7 (2017) 16622, etc. 

Dr. Falaye serves as an editorial member and reviewer to several scholarly journals focusing on Mathematical/Theoretical Physics. He is the pioneer/current editor in chief of the Journal of the Nigerian Society of Physical Sciences https://journal.nsps.org.ng/index.php/jnsps/about/editorialTeam .  

He has attended and participated in several scientific conferences in Nigeria and abroad.
