Dr. Ayedun Funmilayo is an Academic Staff of Department of Pure and Applied Sciences (Physics Unit), Faculty of Science, National Open University of Nigeria. She obatained the following Academic Degrees: First Degree in Physics from the Nigeria premier university, University of Ibadan Nigeria in 1992,  Postgraduate Diploma in Petroleum Engineering from the same institution in 1997. Diploma in Computer Studies in in 2001 from Tai Solarin College of Education transited to Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu – Ode. Maters of Science Degree in Physics from Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago – Iwoye (2008).  She bagged  her Ph.D Physics in 2016 from Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
In 2014 -2015,  she worked on the X-ray absorption spectra and structural, electronics and magnetic properties of rutile based alloys.
Her interest in condensed matter physics, assisted her to theoretically investigate the percentage of  concentration of zirconium atom that can be introduced to rutile TiO2  in order tto have better ceramic materials and tiles.
Her current research interest is ‘First Principle calculation of structural, electronics and magnetic properties of Chromium alloyed with ruttile TiO2   att various concentrations and get a quality and better battery.
This will help battery producing industry and will have it cheaper and of high quality because the materials are here in various states of Nigeria.
Before joining NOUN, she has worked with both  college and university as lecturer and held various duty posts.
