He is also an Adjunct Professor at the Faculty of Health Sciences at Ontario Tech University. He is the Founding Director and Principal Investigator of the Global Health & Innovation Lab: an Implementation Science research and education initiative on the systematic uptake of evidence-based interventions into routine practice in global health.

Prof. Ezezika’s research examines how to scale evidence-based interventions to meet marginalized communities’ health needs at the local and global level. His research aims to promote the uptake of evidence-based health interventions, particularly in low and middleincome countries using implementation science research. These interventions range from mhealth technologies, vaccination campaigns, infectious disease treatments, to large-scale nutrition interventions. He is the inaugural University of Toronto Global Educator Award, which recognizes faculty members who embody its global mission and profile, the recipient of several other awards, including the LEADS scholar award, UTSC Deans Merit Award, and the Next Einstein Fellow Award.
