Adetayo has a BSc from the University of
Ibadan, Nigeria, and a MSc from
Loughborough University, UK. He has
been at the University of Idaho since
2011. Adetayo’s latest project involves
using ESI-MS to study the complexation
and speciation of uranyl(VI) in the
presence of amidoxime ligands and
siderophores such as desferrioxamine B.
Ruma has a BSc and a MSc from
Kumaun University, Uttarakhand, India.
She joined our group in summer 2013.
Ruma is studying the chemistry of
uranyl(VI) and La(III) species in room
temperature ionic liquids using IR,
Raman, and NMR spectroscopic
