Dr. Bibian Ogbuji holds a joint appointment as an Assistant Research Professor for the Texas
Water and Energy Institute and the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the College of
Engineering at The University of Texas Permian Basin. Her research emphasizes the development
of the database and the application of data analytics and machine learning to predict the
spatiotemporal variability of contaminants in produced water. These predictive analytic models
will enable the development of treatment technologies for produced water. Dr. Ogbuji areas of
expertise include machine learning, data analytics, programming, big data, platform
implementation evaluation, digital strategy, database development, data processing, and
visualization. She holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Brunel University London and M.Sc.
in Strategic Information Technology Management from London South Bank University, both in
the United Kingdom. Dr. Ogbuji has over eight years of professional experience in teaching,
research, and industry. She has conducted extensive scholarly work on social media strategy
(SMS) and developed an SMS framework using Practice theory to provide insights into the
platform evaluation process. This work resulted in book and conference proceedings publications.

Dr. Ogbuji is the program coordinator for the Semester/Summer Undergraduate Research in
Engineering (SURE) program, which provides an opportunity for students and faculty to work on
research projects. She leads the Girls in Engineering (GiE) programs to inspire young women to
pursue professions in engineering, educate girls on different engineering career pathways, increase
social equality, and advance innovation. Dr. Ogbuji is the faculty advisor for the National Society
for Black Engineers (NSBE) and Society of Women in Engineering (SWE) UTPB Chapter.
