Our Team

With over 60 years combined of water experience, AquiSense’s team has the knowledge and experience to deliver world-class UV-LED product solutions.

Oliver Lawal

Oliver Lawal has been involved with UV technology since the late 1990’s. As the founder of AquiSense Technologies, he is able to execute his passion for chemical-free water treatment using UV-C LEDs. He also currently serves as Past-President of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA).

Oliver holds two engineering degrees from Manchester University in the United Kingdom, has been widely published on UV topics, named in various global patents and is considered one of the thought leaders in the practical application of UV-LEDs for water treatment. Outside interests include family time, volunteer service work, playing music and riding bikes – with and without motors.
