ISU Alumna Timiebi Aganaba appointed as Executive Director at the WSW Association

Timiebi (Timi) Aganaba joined the International Space University (ISU) with a legal background, after studies in Nigeria and UK, and obtained her Master degree at ISU in 2008. She performed an internship on the Isle of Man with the space division of Cains Advocates.

She then stayed in ISU as Teaching Associate during the academic year 2008/2009 and, after working in a Nigerian legal office, went to Canada to complete further studies in space law. She has presently submitted her PhD thesis in the field of space law at McGill University and was a guest lecturer at various universities.

She is a qualified barrister and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, and also gained a reputation as a specialist in science and technology policy. Timi spent the past four years as Space Industry Consultant with Euroconsult in Canada. In addition to this she is an independent consultant (NSSR) in Montreal.

She also represented Nigeria at the Legal Subcommittee of the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space in Vienna and at the UN International Civil Aviation Organization Model Council in Montreal. She was one of 16 women recognized for significant contribution to Quebec society for International Women’s Day 2016.

With this background, it is no surprise that World Space Week Association appointed her now in the role of Executive Director. Another ISU alumna reinforcing the ranks of female space leaders!

This news is fitting very well in the ISU initiative to start a Women In Aerospace-Europe Strasbourg (WIA-E SXB) chapter at the ISU Central Campus in March 2016.


"My life can be clearly divided between before and after ISU. ISU was a breaking point that created a world of possibilities in front of me."

Carmen Felix - MSS10 -

"Attending ISU has been, for me, the ultimate eye-opening experience. Attending the Master of Space Studies allowed me to pursue my personal interests with a limit determined only by my imagination."

Diego Urbina - MSS09 -

"My space flight was the changing point in my whole life. Since my background was mechanical engineering, I did not know much about space, which led me to the International Space University."

Soyeon Yi - SSP09 -

"ISU is broadening the global space community and connecting New Space countries to old and mighty ones."
