My Story

My full name is Faisal Ali Garba Gama. Starting from the begining, there was a time I was a truant. When I was enrolled in Shukurah Primary School, Kano. I couldn’t cope at first due to language barrier. I don’t know much on English Language. My class teacher never hesitate to lash out those who failed her assignments. I have no alternative than to ran back home. However, as the twist of fate will have it, I started learning English Language. My position in class moved from 36th position to 3rd position, to 2nd position and eventually to 1st position until I graduated from primary school.

I got admitted to Command Secondary School, Jos as a result of my passion to become a soldier! I continued with my excellent performance in secondary school. I was 2nd overall best student one time and overall best student two times with prizes in many subjects. I couldn’t go on to become a soldier. I developed a short sight.

I wanted to study medicine and surgery at Bayero University Kano, but fate pushed me  to study Computer Science.

Today I am a Lecturer with Department of Computer Science Education, Sa’adatu Rimi College of Education in Kano, Nigeria where I have spent seven years teaching computer science courses. I am also the Founder of Phoenyx Academy, an online cybersecurity course company. I developed an efficient Short Message Service (SMS) hybrid encryption scheme that utilizes Blowfish encryption algorithm (symmetric algorithm) and Elliptic Curve Diffie Hellman (asymmetric algorithm) during my M.Sc. dissertation at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. I am currently studying for my PhD degree at Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, working on “Enhanced Argumentation Based Reasoner (EABR) for Cyber Attack Attribution in Digital Forensics”.

I am open to new opportunities in the academic or industrial sector.
