JUNIAS ADUSEI-GYAMFI

PhD, MSc, BSc.

Position:
Lecturer
Water Resource and Sustainable Development

BRIEF PROFILE:

RESEARCH AREAS/ INTERESTS:

Publications and Conferences:

Junias Adusei-Gyamfi holds a PhD in Environmental Chemistry and Drinking Water Treatment from the University of Lille, France; an MSc. from Institut Supérieur d’Agriculture de Lille (ISA-Lille), France, and a BSc. Chemistry from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana.
He has for several years been involved in various international and regional projects and research to improve water quality through integrated water resource management by characterizing pollutants in water, monitoring water quality, and developing sustainable solutions to remediate polluted water bodies.
He is currently a lecturer at the department of Water Resources and Sustainable Development where he leverages off his personal experience and bilingual skills (English and French), expertise in water and professional problem-solving skills as a researcher and scientist to develop technical and innovative solutions to increase global access to potable water and decent sanitation especially for the most vulnerable.
