He is a Physicist and an Instrumentation professional having more than 20 years of experience in Indian and abroad. He had started his career from National Physical Laboratory New Delhi (India) in the year 1998-1999. Presently he is working as a Founder and CEO of RI Instruments & Innovation India, RI Nanotech India, Managing Director of RINZTECH NZ LTD, New Zealand. He also has privilege to start an instrumentation company for making upper end research instruments in India and these are like Raman Spectrometer, RIMS and RIUS Spectrometer, Cost Effective Solar Simulator, XRD and more. He has developed several cost-effective upper end research instruments specially in the domain of spectroscopy and nano technology / smart materials/societal products. There are several patents and research papers in his credit. One of his cost-effective innovations RIMS (Modular Spectroscopic Work Station) was highly appreciated across the globe and now working satisfactorily in several parts of India and abroad. In one modular instrument setup, researchers could measure several parameters and these are like Raman, Fluorescence, Absorbance, Transmittance, Reflectance, irradiance, CRI, Micro-absorbance, Spectro-electrochemistry and this system is cost effective also unique of its kind in the world. He also has a privilege among selected entrepreneurs from India who has been invited by IODs to address British upper house. He has also produced and directed 2 regional movies in the state of Uttarakhand (India).
Professor Ejembi John Onah started his career at the early age of 22 years with a year mandatory national youth corps service at Biu, Borno State after graduating from University of Jos, Jos Nigeria in 1985 with Bachelor of Science in chemistry with honors and a Master of Science in Applied Organic Chemistry in 1993. He further took Chemistry faculty positions at various institutions including Benue State Universities tenure from 1987-1997. Before going to University for his bachelor, he obtained West African School Certificate (WASC) in division one and came first in his first living certificate exams among his class. In 1996 he was awarded a prestigious German international scholarship; Katholischer Akademischer Ausländerdienst-KAAD to further his career in chemistry at the ivy league institute; the Max Institute ,Golm, Humboldt University of Berlin and University of Würzburg from 1997-1998. In 1998 he became a scientist at Karl Leibniz (the man that discovered binary system that gave birth to computer), Institute for Polymer Research and doctoral student at University of Technology, TU Dresden where he obtained his first doctorate in chemistry summa cum laude in examination in 2001 in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology being one of the first to be awarded such a degree globally. In his doctoral work, he set a world record for the synthesis of polymer with the lowest dielectric constant ever produced of less than 1. He has another doctorate in biblical studies from the Newburgh Theological Seminary & College of the Bible, Newburgh Indiana where he finished his thesis within a month. In 2001 to 2004, he joined Virginia Tech and Ivy League Cornell University faculties in Chemistry in USA. As from 2005, Ejembi founded Focus Nanotechnology Africa Inc where he is currently the President/CEO. He is also currently the founding Chairman of US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and Caribbean Nanotechnology Initiative
(USEACANI) and US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and Caribbean Academy of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (USEACANN) as a professor, pioneering the causes of Nano covering 189 countries. He the chancellor of Ejembi John Onah Nano-Academy being built to offer only PhD in Nano globally. He is also founding Editor-In-Chief of peer review journal; Journal Nanotechnology Progress International (JONPI) with several Nobel Laureates as editors and has published widely in peer reviewed journals, co-edited in other scientific journals among others. He is a member of the American Chemical Society (ACS); a pastor and married with 4 children; one of them, Ijeyikowoicho just won a bronze medal representing USA in the Pan-America under 20 recently held in Costa Rica and in management studies in the university for her bachelor.
