 Excellent training/teaching skills in multicultural society and competent
research ability;
 Exemplary interdisciplinary skills;
 Have a passion for environmental conservation.
EXPERIENCE:
 Environmental Simulation modeling – Environmental risk/disaster
assessment, GCM downscaling model (SDSM), Production efficiency
Models, environmental perception, Net primary Productivity.
 Climate change adaptation project; adapting African Agriculture to climate
change- stakeholders’ workshops, public perception surveys, Geographic
information System (GIS) database development and information
management and communication. Example - CIP/GTZ project.
 Survey of preferred climate change mitigation and adaptation methods in
Central Kenya. – Example -JKUAT University PhD project publication
 Identification of environmental policy gaps – e.g. JKUAT University PhD
project; CIP/GTZ project; Wageningen University project
 Social survey methods, data collection, screening, statistical analysis and
publication of results e.g. Zhejiang University project and publications.
 IPCC Climate change scenarios – e.g. JKUAT University PhD project
 Environmental planning and conservation - e.g. JKUAT University teaching
 Training and supervision of enumerators; CBS-population census 1999
 Generation of user friendly thematic maps and data for web posting -e.g.
Adifrago consultants
 Stakeholders feedback survey and analysis – e.g. Faculty of Agriculture
JKUAT
 Climate change resilience building options -PhD dissertation work
 Interdisciplinary survey methodology- e.g. Land dynamics study Wageningen
university
 Environmental Management and Coordination Act 1999- registered Lead
expert EIA and EA with NEMA
ACHIEVEMENTS:
 Worked as part of a team to design ecological residential space in urban and
rural areas; making them more livable.
 Work as part of the climate change adaptation team, that organized
stakeholders workshops in East Africa ( Kenya, Uganda, and Ethiopia)
