Oluwafemi A Oyedeji

R&D Assistant Staff member

Dr. Oluwafemi Oyedeji is an R&D Assistant Staff member at the Environmental Sciences Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His research interest focuses on exploring multiscale modeling approaches for optimizing biomass logistics supply and thermochemical conversion systems. He completed his Ph.D. in Biosystems Engineering at the University of Tennessee in 2019 and his M.S. in Biosystems Engineering at Auburn University 2015. He also earned an M.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Tennessee in 2018. Oluwafemi's dissertation focused on understanding the evolution of syngas contaminants during biomass gasification. He is a member of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers and was the recipient of the New Faces of Engineering Award from the society in 2018.

Dr. Oyedeji is a member of the Consortium for Computational Physics and Chemistry and an active researcher in the DOE-funded Feedstock-Conversion Interface Consortium. He has extensive experience in biomass feedstock variability and multiscale modeling of biomass thermochemical conversion in fluidized bed systems. He is highly motivated to build on contemporary technological developments to achieve effective engineering tools to help engineers and scientists better store, handle, grind, and convert lignocellulosic biomass. Dr. Oyedeji has authored and co-authored several publications on biomass preprocessing and thermochemical conversion.
