Personal profile


Dr Gbanaibolou Jombo is a Senior Lecturer in Machine Performance and Structural Integrity at the School of Physics, Engineering, and Computer Science, University of Hertfordshire, UK. His research focuses on diagnostics, prognostics, and reliability of engineering systems. He has been involved in consultancy with several companies and provides expertise in: noise and vibration, machine condition monitoring, and structural health monitoring.

He is the Programme Leader for MSc Aerospace, Automotive and Mechanical Engineering, in the School of Physics, Engineering, and Computer Science, University of Hertfordshire. 

He is a fellow of higher education academy (AdvanceHE), a UK chartered engineer (IMechE) and AdvanceHE trained external examiner.

He is an external examiner for: Nottingham Trent International College with responsibility for Foundation Certificate for Science and Engineering (Academic Year 2022-23 – Academic Year 2025-26) and ONCAMPUS with responsibility for International Year One Engineering Programme (Academic Year 2022-23 – Academic Year 2025-26).

Previously, he was a KTP Research Associate in the School of Engineering, University of Lincoln working on a joint project with Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Lincoln on the development of intelligent systems for the testing and monitoring of industrial gas turbines.

He completed his PhD from Cranfield University, working on the integrated application of vibration and gas path analysis for the monitoring of fouling in a gas turbine compressor.

He received the John Greenlees Findlay Memorial Award in Recognition of Endeavour & Initiative for his MSc in Design of Rotating Machines in Cranfield University.

He has published research articles in leading international journals. He is a reviewer board member for Sensors, Signals, Eng and African Journal of Engineering and Environment Research. He is a reviewer for other journals such as: Energies, Materials, Applied Sciences, Remote Sensing, Symmetry, Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing, amongst others.
