My name is Molade Osibodu. I am a first year doctoral student in the department of Mathematics Education at the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!). I moved to the United States from Nigeria in 2002 to begin my collegiate career at the University of Memphis. I received my bachelor's degree in May 2006 in Electrical Engineering with a double major in Mathematical Sciences. After graduating, I got a job offer at a power company in Little Rock, AR in August 2006 to work as an Electrical Engineer. After deciding engineering wasn't for me, I enrolled at the University of Central Arkansas in Fall of 2007 to work on my Master's degree in Applied Mathematics.

While at UCA, I was awarded a graduate teaching assistantship which enabled me to teach College Algebra and Business Calculus. This teaching experience further fueled my love for teaching hence my reason for enrolling at UGA for a Phd. I completed my Masters degree in August of 2009. I have always loved mathematics and absolutely enjoy teaching it. My future goal is to make the Nigerian educational system world class.

I am a HUGE memphis basketball fan (GO TIGERS!!!).

During my spare time, I enjoy reading, talking, travelling, tutoring math (I have over 10 years experience), eating and cooking, watching collegiate/professional basketball/football games and watching my many many TV shows. I also enjoy watching soccer games (I'm Nigerian) which means I'm super stoked about the world cup happening next summer.

I have a two and a half year old chihuahua named Tommie (see picture below) whom I adopted in January of 2007.
