A Lecturer I in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. Taofeek earned his PhD in Sociology and Anthropology with a specialization in Family and Urban Health from Obafemi Awolowo University in 2019. He received his MSc (2012) and BSc (First class honours) (2008) in Sociology and Anthropology, respectively, from the same university. His PhD dissertation examined “socio-ecological factors (individual-, household-, and community-levels) impacting the existence, patterns and repercussions of parent-adolescent communication on SRH of adolescents in selected urban slums in Ibadan, Nigeria. He has one manuscript published titled “Factors associated with parent-adolescent communication on sexual and reproductive health issues in Ibadan’s urban slums.” DOI: 10.1177/0272684X211007695, International Quarterly of Community Health Education (SAGE). Taofreek’s research interests encompass a broad range of areas within sociology, including family studies, urban studies, adolescent sexual and reproductive health, environmental studies, and research methods. His research agenda is guided by two broad objectives:  to gain a better understanding of adolescents, parents, and families living in urban areas  to gain insight into the ways in which the environment shapes the experiences of adolescents, parents, and families living in cities. Thus, his aspiration post-PhD has been to establish a career in family and urban sociology and to become a recognized expert in the field, with a particular emphasis on urban health inequalities, adolescents’ rights and policy gaps, sexualized drug use, and change in family dynamics. He has been actively involved in a number of research projects, including those funded by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) projects (2016, 2019, and 2020); United Nation Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) project (2019); a mentee on CARTA re-entry grant (2019); and Osun State Youth Employment and Social Support Operation (YESSO) project (2018). Taofreek have also worked with the Malaria Consortium to train qualitative field workers on intermittent preventative therapy in infants (IPTi) effect study in Osun and Ebonyi States (2021).
