Dr. Tosin Sekoni, PhD


Dr. Tosin Sekoni’s research focuses on utilizing vegetation, plant communities, ecosystems, and other natural features, in engineering practices. Based on her interest using plant communities as engineering materials, Dr. Sekoni’s work investigates ways to incorporate vegetation into USACE projects such as dredged material placement areas, parks, reservoirs, and other public and private lands. Her expertise lies in the establishment of ecosystems such as wetlands, dunes, prairies, terrestrial systems, riparian systems, etc., for erosion control, dyke stability, dust control, dewatering, ecosystem development, mitigation, and other engineering purposes, in order to reduce operational cost, promote healthy ecosystem, and to optimize economic, environmental, and engineering benefits.
