My doctoral research was on the landscape evolution and hydrogeology of south-west Uganda. It incorporated a broad range of techniques including apatite fission track analysis, electrical resistivity tomography, and pumping test analysis. I am currently planning further research on groundwater resources and geomorphology in Uganda, and developing new areas of research in related fields in the USA. I seek to involve students in all areas of my current research.
