Livelihoods Coping Strategies for Adaptation to Climate Change in Marigat Sub- County, Baringo County, Kenya
As an Associate Professor of Environmental Health at the Department of Environmental Science, I teach a number of undergraduate and postgraduate courses at Egerton university including Environmental Health, Water and Sanitation, Environmental Law and Policy, Watershed Management, Environmental Toxicology, Environmental Law, Environmental Impact Assessment, Research Methods I and Research Methods II. Between 2006 and 2008, I worked as an Assistant Professor at Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, USA. I taught a number of undergraduate courses among them Environmental Geology, Physical Geology, and Physical Science. I also conducted post-doctoral research focusing on Environmental Geochemistry and Toxicology. In addition to the aforementioned tasks, I have effectively and efficiently guided M.Sc. and PhD students doing research on water quality and quantity, water accessibility, Water, sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH), Water management, pollution, environmental health, and environmental conservation in Kenya and beyond. Details of those that have graduated under my supervision are on my attached resume. I spearheaded the development of the M.Sc. and PhD programs in Occupational and Environmental Health at the Department of Environmental Science at Egerton University. I am currently the Academic Programme Leader for the postgraduate programme, M.Sc. Occupational and Environmental Health. I have also served as a post-graduate student Academic Advisor for various M.Sc. and PhD Occupational and Environmental Health cohorts since 2012.
Specifically, I teach the following courses at the Department of Environmental Science, Egerton University:
2022: Judith Koskey, PhD. Effects of Land Use on Vegetation Composition, Water Quality and Benthic Macroinvertebrates Assemblages in The Njoro and Kamweti Rivers, Kenya. Egerton University, Kenya.
2022 - Alice Jebiwott:, PhD. An Assessment of Mau Forest Cover, Climate Change and Impacts of Evictions On Livelihoods in the Rift-Valley, Kenya. PAULESI, University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
