OLUWATOBI AKERELE


Associate Software Engineer at Capital One in Plano, Texas

BS Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology, Purdue University

Synopsis


I attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN and graduated in 2019. Some of the things I like to do in my spare time are take on projects to solve problems using technology, play poker and basketball. I like learning new things and one of the few things I try to do more often now is read and dance as a hobby. I am deeply interested in home automation including the use of contact and motion sensors to perform certain tasks at home.
