Current Research Activities

Engineering sciences

Many years of research experience in graduate-level civil and public health engineering, with focus in the areas of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), solid waste management, environment, development and sustainability. Have developed a mechanism to deliver sustainable safe drinking water and sanitation services to support health security in coastal communities in developing countries. This study contributed to knowledge on sanitation challenges within the selected waterfronts in achieving the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goal number 6 (SDG6)
