Dr. Malomo, a lecturer and a social researcher, teaches Psychology at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels at the Department of Psychology. She obtained her Ph.D, M.Sc and B.Sc degrees from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Her research interests focus on social factors responsible for the behaviour of automobile drivers. Hence, for her M.Sc thesis, she investigated the factors responsible for the differential compliance of drivers to the use of seat belts in Ibadan and Ikeja. For her Ph.D thesis, Dr. Malomo developed the first psychological test in Nigeria for the evaluation of automobile drivers. Her Ph.D thesis also launched her into a new foray known as psychometrics; the measurement of individual differences in behaviour.

Dr. Malomo is a consultant to the Federal Road Safety Corps, Lagos State Transport Management Authority and some private organizations. She is also an examiner in the Nigerian Institute of Personnel Management. Her experiences both on the field of research and her vast knowledge of the literature on behaviour of drivers in Nigeria are available to add value to the overall objectives of these organizations and Nigeria.

 She is a member of local and international academic associations, and currently, the first secretary of the Nigerian Social Psychologist, a division of the Nigerian Psychological Association. Her attendance at numerous conferences in Nigeria and abroad where she presented topics on behavioural aspects of driving has added quality to her experience in driver behaviour. Dr. Malomo has just concluded a study on Nigerian adolescent driving behaviour in collaboration with researchers from four other continents. She has also won one research grant from the University of Lagos.
