US University Appoints Nigeria’s Aisha Ali-Gombe as Director of Its New Cybersecurity Clinic

The Louisiana State University has appointed a Nigerian, Aisha Ali-Gombe as the director of its new Cybersecurity Clinic.

Ali-Gombe is currently an associate professor at the institution.

Her appointment followed a $1.5 million grant from the US National Security Agency to Louisiana State University.

The cash will be used to establish a prototype Cybersecurity Clinic to defend small businesses against intrusions.

On Sunday, the University of Abuja congratulated Ali-Gombe, whom it described as an alumna of the institution, in a post on its official Facebook page.

“Big congratulations to the University of Abuja alumna, Aisha Ali-Gombe, an associate professor of Computer Science & Engineering, who has been selected as the director of the new Cybersecurity Clinic at Louisiana State University, where she lectures. Aisha, who is now a US-based Nigerian professor from Gombe state, was the best-graduating student in the Department of Computer Science in 2004.”

According to HowNG, academics of Nigerian descent have continued to gain plaudits and assignments around the world in recent years.

Calvin University School of Health in the United States chose Adejoke Ayoola, a Nigerian-born and trained professor of Nursing, as its inaugural dean in June 2022, citing remarkable accomplishments that qualified her for the position.

In its official announcement, the institution characterized her as an accomplished researcher and leader who has made significant contributions to community-based nursing, maternal and infant health research.

Tunji Olaopa, a Nigerian professor, was appointed to the international advisory committee of the African Training and Research Centre in Administration for Development, a pan-African intergovernmental organization, in July 2022.

The Malaysian government engaged a Nigerian Professor, Abdulrauf Ambali, to perform a national security index study in December 2022.
