Uthman is a trained environmental/analytical chemistry researcher whose research interests include the use of analytical techniques for monitoring the impact of environmental parameters on the chemical constituents of marine and terrestrial plants, and the exploitation of changes in such parameters for developing functional foods with enhanced nutritional quality and bioactivity.

Having acquired a BSc in industrial chemistry from Oduduwa University (Nigeria) and an MSc in analytical chemistry from the University of Aberdeen (UK), Uthman acquired a PhD in environmental science from the University of the Highlands and Islands (UK), where he researched the potentials of seaweed as a value adding product for the food and drink industry. Currently, Uthman is a postdoctoral researcher on the UV-SINTEC project.
