Oyelola Adegboye is a chartered biostatistician/scientist and an experienced public health researcher. His background includes advanced knowledge and skills in biostatistics - spatial and spatiotemporal statistics, environmental statistics, disease mapping, epidemiology, correlated and multi-level modeling with applications in population and public health studies as well as strong programming skills in R and SAS.

Oyelola's work centers on developing and integrating innovative statistical approaches to advance public health and health care research. He focuses on exploring geographical variations in infectious and non-infectious diseases, covariance structures in spatio-temporal models, an/isotropy issues in spatial data, and complex correlation structures in marginal and mixed models. His methodological research interests fall in the area of correlation/covariance structure in public health and ecological data.

Oyelola has several peer reviewed publications on spatial epidemiology, applied statistics and risk/incident prediction modelling. His recent work includes network models for modelling highly infectious diseases and the effects of armed conflicts on the re-emergence of infectious diseases.

He is a reviewer for many interdisciplinary journals such as Technology Innovations in Statistics Education, Journal of Applied Statistics, BMC Public Health, BMJ Open, Plos Neg, Epidemiology and Infection, Open Veterinary Journal, and BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth, to name a few.

He is a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society.
