Christian Ogbonna

Transforming Africa through oceanography

Christian is a Nigerian emerging scientist in Oceanography.

He obtained a Bachelors in Science in Mathematics from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. When he completed his first degree, he was awarded a fully funded scholarship to study at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) Ghana. From there he went to the University of Waterloo in Canada to pursue a masters research degree in Oceanography at the Department of Applied Mathematics. 

Christian's research and development success has led to  finding a niche in ocean sciences. He's motivated by the  belief that the world can be a better place through science and technology. Hence, understanding the principles governing the science of the world's oceans is essential to solving issues such as climate change. This is real applied Mathematics in action.

At AIMS our students and alumni are our greatest indicators of success. We are proud to have produced 1,513 graduates, one-third of whom are women. Our alumni hail from 43 African nations, and are fast becoming leaders in academia and industry across Africa and around the globe.

Our remarkable success rate will continue with the support of donors like you. There are thousands of deserving students with incredible drive to solve challenges who have some of the most remarkable stories, but they need you to help them realize their dreams.

Mathematics is the mother of all sciences, and to truly understand how science works, it is imperative to have a thorough understanding of the theories and applications of mathematical sciences. That's why I studied at AIMS.
