Profile

Tajudeen (a.k.a Teejay) possessed a Bachelor of Science degree in Urban and Regional Planning from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria as well as a Master of Science degree in Urban and Regional Planning also from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.

My Primary research interest lies in the field of housing quality, urban design and its relationship with physical and mental health in the context of environmental change.

The Research project investigates the relationship between climate change, house/practices and health of residents. It examines the influence of housing on households’ capacity to adapt to climate change. The study is geared towards understanding how householders everyday practices are entangled in how vulnerability is created and reproduced and how these factors could be reshaped to enrich their adaptive capacity.
