My research focuses on evaluating exposure data for antibiotics, and pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in wastewater and receiving water environment.
While at Bath, I worked on measuring antibiotics and PPCPs in wastewater and river water samples from South Africa. I hope to bring out meaningful results that will be of importance for further development either in policy or research.
My funding opportunity
The EU INTERWASTE project funded my visit to Bath. EU INTERWASTE is a project that synergises international research studies into the environmental fate and behaviour of toxic organic chemicals in the waste stream.
Through this project, I am able to collaborate with Professor Barbara Kasprzyk-Hordern, who is well-established in water epidemiology studies.
I have enjoyed my stay in Bath, as it is a beautiful city with great heritage. The people here are warm and it is a peaceful and safe place to live. There are quite a lot of interesting places to visit, including the Roman Baths and the Fashion Museum.
