Biography

Muyiwa completed his PhD research programme at the CSDILA, in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering in 2013. He has a bachelor’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning obtained from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. During his time as an undergraduate, he received a number of departmental and faculty awards. He has Masters Degrees in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Urban and Regional Planning; both obtained at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. His experiences reflect the interplay of teaching, research and consultancy works in Urban and Regional Planning as well as in the area of GIS applications to urban and regional issues. He participated in an extensive survey and the subsequent upgrading plans for the 42 blighted areas of Lagos State in the World Bank assisted Community Infrastructure Upgrading Programme for Metropolitan Lagos in 1995. This has stimulated his research interest in the area of housing provision, security of tenure and slum management in the emerging urban centres especially the mega-cities. He lectures at the University of Lagos, Nigeria.
