Vincent Oria: I was born in the Ivory coast of Cote d’Ivoire and I did my Masters in Cote d’Ivoire then I got a scholarship to go to France and I got my PhD from one of the grants Ecole which is called Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications, teach about telecommunication. And then from there I went to Canada where I did the post-doc and I have been at NJIT since January 2000.
When I finished my post-doc I was looking at different options that I had and I liked the location. When I came for interview I liked the location. It’s like a small sample of the world, like everybody around this area is from somewhere else so that was fascinating and I liked it.
