Shola is a Junior Researcher at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and an IT Professional with progressive experience in Industry/University settings. He did his Bachelors in Malaysia majoring in Computer Forensics. He speaks English and Malay. Enjoys working in a multidisciplinary and multicultural team, including but not limited to the HCI/Human Side of Cyber Physical Systems team at LUT and the Resilience Lab at California State University Long Beach (CSULB).

He has been working in industry for almost six years as a software developer, IT Engineer, IT Administrator and then a Team leader.  In 2014, He moved to Europe for his master’s degree as part of the Erasmus+ Program. His master’s thesis was about Defining and Measuring Sustainability as a Quality Attribute in Software Systems.

Currently a PhD candidate working under the supervision of Prof. Ahmed Seffah from LUT and Dr. Birgit Penzenstadler from (CSULB). Also, co-manager of CODER Living Lab in charge of its Cloud infrastructure, development and usage of toolset required for the LUT Digi-Users research platform (an interdisciplinary long-term initiative).

His research interests are on those attributes and measures that quantify sustainability as a quality factor of software products, service and systems including Cyber Physical Systems. His PhD research is about sustainability as an emerging quality attribute, its quantification and integration in system development.  Sustainability can be observed and measured only when human interact with system.  We are adopting a socio-technical (eco-stem) approach. He is developing and validating an Advanced Framework for Research, Integration and Quantification of Sustainability (AFRIQAS) which is the major outcome of his research work. Also, he is conducting a long-term survey on the trends, practices and patterns of sustainability in software systems and development in industry.

Some of his current and ongoing work include:

– Shola Oyedeji, Ahmed Seffah, and Birgit Penzenstadler: Sustainability Quantification in Requirements Informing Design, at the 25th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE4SuSy workshop) 4-8 September 2017, Lisbon, Portugal. (accepted)

– Shola Oyedeji, Ahmed Seffah and Birgit Penzenstadler: Case Studies Analysis for the Development of a Sustainability by Design Catalogue, for the Information and Software Technology Journal (IST) (Under Review)

– Shola Oyedeji, Ahmed Seffah: Sustainability as a Quality Construct: Yesterday Perceptions, Today Dimensions and Tomorrow Measurement, for Software Quality Journal (Under Review)

Outside the university, he is involved in the creation and development of a startup called Grezzli: An online Market place for students to build and market their talents with opportunities of networking with experts and industry players.
