WORKING EXPERIENCE

  1. Enriched my professional content as an animal scientist by working as a production manager in UAC (Nig) from 1972 to 1975.
  2. Joined the faculty of the University of Nigeria as a Junior Fellow in 1975. Travelled to Ontario Canada in August 1976 and returned to the University in August 1981 with M.Sc & Ph.D Degrees from 1981 to 1999 I progressed from Lecturer II to the Status of Professor of Animal Nutrition and Biochemistry. In the intervening period and after, I performed Various Duties in Teaching, Research and Supervision of Undergraduates and graduate students. I also served in various capacities in the department, faculty and university administration.
  3. My services were also extended to outside bodies. I served as external examiner to many Nigerian Universities, helping to moderate and ensure the quality of undergraduate and M.Sc final examination. I served as external examiner for many Ph.D candidates and also served as external assessor for many University in the assessment of their candidates for promotion to the status of Professors. I also served in the Governing Council of the Nigerian Institute of Animal Science (NIAS) in Abuja. NIAS is a National Regulatory body set up by law, to regulate the practice of Animal production in all its ramifications.

Dr. Collins Udanor

 

Dr. Collins had his B.Eng in Computer Science & Engineering, M.Sc in Computer Science and Ph.D in Electronic Engineering and has many years of hands-on experience in IT and computing. He has worked over a decade as an Academic, teaching and supervising undergraduate and graduate students. Over these years he has been involved in research, workshop organization and presentations. He has over a dozen journal and conference publications to his credit. He has also been richly involved in software development projects of various capacities and on varying platforms. He designed and implemented Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs), notably the LIONGRID-UNN-NG, the only Grid Computing infrastructure in Nigeria. The DCI platforms include Grid Computing, Cloud and Clusters. On  these infrastructures are deployed applications like R for statistical analysis computation, and graphics, GNU Octave for numerical computation, Clustalw for multiple alignment of nucleic acid and protein sequences, WRF for weather research and forecasting, Hadoop for big data analytic and prediction, etc.He is deeply involved in the management of many projects, some which include university projects like the UNN-UNESCO-HP Grid Computing project, UNN Result Processing System project, UNN Google Ambassador Project, UNN Transport Company, UN Transroutes, etc. Over the last five years he has been deeply involved in the development, deployment and training of scientists, workshop and conference presentations on e-Infrastructures under the UNESCO-HP Brain Gain Initiative, eI4Africa project, WACREN. Dr. Udanor also led the team that developed the Pidgin English version of the Google search engine in 2011, among other projects.
