Temidayo Abiola Oloye
Temidayo “Abiola” Oloye is a doctoral candidate in the Materials Science and Engineering program at the Florida State University. She is originally from Lagos, Nigeria and grew up with dreams of becoming an engineer. She started her graduate school journey at FSU in Fall 2016, with a fellowship from the MSE program, which enabled her work in multiple labs over the course of her first year. Abiola eventually landed at the Applied Superconductivity Center, a part of National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) at FSU. She works on microstructural characterization of a high temperature superconductor (HTS) called Bismuth-2212 (Bi-2212). Through her research, Abiola has been able to hone her skills in microscopy and image analysis as part of her dissertation goals of correlating microstructure to critical current densities in high temperature superconductors with the overall goal of pushing these HTS materials towards future practical applications like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Machines, Magnetic Levitation (MagLev) trains etc. Abiola believes in mentoring as a way of furthering STEM education to the young generation, and as such has been participating in various mentorship schemes through the MagLab and FSU. Abiola’s interests outside of research are reading good books, cooking, hiking, biking, exploring and taking care of her houseplants.
