Temi received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the University of Ilorin, the M.Sc. degree in Mobile Computing from the University of Bradford, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Kent. He holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education from the University of Keele and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Prior to Temi's current appointment at Nottingham Trent University, he was a Senior Lecturer in Computing at Worcester Business School, Department of Computing, University of Worcester from September 2016 to May 2020, where he was the research excellence framework (REF) coordinator and Research Group Leader for the Applied Computing Research Group. From September 2015 to August 2016, he was a Teaching Fellow in Computing in the School of Computing and Mathematics at the University of Keele. From June 2012 to September 2015, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and then as a Lecturer in Mobile Communication at the University of Kent. During this time, he was involved with 5G communications research using models, methods and tools for mobile communication systems.
Temi's research interests include modelling and analysis of computing and communication systems such as those found in web-based systems, mobile communication systems, mobile computing systems, internet of things (IoT), and their applications in every area of public life including, finance, healthcare, wireless networks, buildings, entertainment, and related industries. His research spans the whole spectrum from technical design, through algorithms to system development and performance evaluation.
