About me

I am a clinician and a Senior Lecturer in Applied Human Physiology, Faculty of Health and Applied Science. I obtained my medical qualification (MBChB) from Olabisi Onabanjo University, Nigeria; MSc (Medical Physiology) from the University of East London, United Kingdom; and Ph.D. (Clinical Exercise Physiology) from Loughborough University, United Kingdom. A Commonwealth Scholar and currently the Secretary to the low middle-income countries (LMIC)  research council - International Society for Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH). With over 10 years of diverse international and UK teaching experience in higher education institutions, my teaching focuses on optimal student engagement and independent and creative thinking that prepares students for their future careers. 

I am open to Ph.D. supervision in specific areas of interest related to physical activity and health promotion in chronic lifestyle diseases (diabetes and chronic kidney disease) and underrepresented groups (BAME, women, elderly). Faatihah is a Co-I on a £1.8M UKRI-funded project (Fitbees) to encourage sustainable physical activity in under-represented groups currently not engaging with the digital fitness market. She is awarded the UWE VC Challenge fund 2022-2023 on the use of AI to interpret video recordings of keyhole cardiac surgeries to appraise surgeons’ performance, optimise surgical tasks, and identify training needs (IVA HEART). She also won the HAS-FBL cross-faculty grant for integrating AI and AR in the pre-operative planning of key hole cardiac surgery (AI/ARMICVS). She is the current employability champion of the healthcare science programme and a member of HAS ethics committee.
