Knowledge is the elixir of life. 

I am very interested in action research, development, and extension as a way of consolidating scientific knowledge to bring solutions to real problems affecting needing rural communities. This includes research in the areas of irrigation (engineering, design, development and management), Land and Water Resources Management and Rural Development.

Personal interests:

 My main interest is to work with rural farming communities to help in their development. During my study and work journey, I’ve had different experiences and acquired a set of skills that can help to improve the living conditions of these communities. By doing this, in my view, I will be contributing for part of the local communities’ solutions seeking for livelihood improvement, which ultimately helps in local and country or regional development. In the other hand, I am passionate on teaching and tutoring. Hence, my other interests include university lecturing on the fields related to my background studies and my research.
