Victor Adegboye

Board Member

Victor is a PhD student in the department of mechanical engineering at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts United States. He currently explores how to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to improve water access in communities in South-East Asia and Africa where they use mechanical handpumps to access water. His research focuses on enhancing the reliability of these handpumps, which break so often and leave communities stranded without clean water. He uses ML on audio data recorded from pumps in operation, for machine fault detection with an eye to fault prediction and robust condition monitoring of water infrastructure.

Prior to joining Tufts, he served the Nigerian government through the NYSC (National Youth Service Corps) program where he was deployed to work briefly at the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) – The nation’s electricity transmission provider. During his NYSC, he volunteered with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Community Development Service (CDS) group. In the SDG CDS, he was the secretary and an active executive member. He participated in numerous humanitarian projects that were geared towards achieving some of the SDGs. As a member of the Advocacy subgroup, he was heavily involved in a train-the-trainer project in Abuja, Nigeria. He did projects with the Mental Health Empowerment Initiative (MHEI) organization and a motherless babies’ home.

Victor genuinely appreciates the privilege of working with the M-TC as it affords him the opportunity to make more impact in the world. He is humbled to be a board member and he continues to contribute significantly to the success of our initiatives and strategic partnerships.
