With over 25 invention disclosure to the US patent office, Adekunle has distinguished himself as a top performer at the HP Labs in Palo Alto CA where he leads the research into development of materials for 3D printing application. At this edition of The Innovative Grind, Adekunle will be sharing on what it takes to build an innovative mindset for entrepreneurship and intrepreneurship success.
Adekunle Olubummo received his MSc and PhD degree in Polymer Material Science from the Martin Luther University Halle Germany. He joined Chevron Oronite after his PhD where he developed polymeric materials for engine oil additives. He then joined HP Labs where he is leading the research into development of materials for 3D printing application. Dr Olubummo's research is in the broad field of polymeric materials and focuses on developing fundamental understanding of material properties of functional materials through experimentation and constitutive modeling, then applying these understandings to application designs. He has submitted over 25 invention disclosure to the US patent office and has published over 7 articles in international journals.
