Dr. Fred Ayodi Lisouza

Dr. Fred Ayodi Lisouza is a lecturer and researcher of Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, School of Natural Sciences (SONAS), Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST). He holds a doctorate degree in Analytical Chemistry and a Master of Science degree in Chemistry from Maseno University. He also has a Bachelor of Education (Science) degree from Egerton University. Dr. Lisouza's research interests have been inclined towards establishing the links between environmental pollution and human health and climate change. Towards this end, he has focussed his research on persistent and emerging organic pollutants; their environmental sources, regional and spatial distributions, fugacities, environmental fate, and health risk assessments. Currently, he is working on a project, in collaboration with the University of Bristol, United Kingdom, on selected emerging oceanic organic pollutants, their possible effect on atmospheric carbon sequestration, and the possible impacts on global warming and climate change. Analysis and the possible contribution of mycochemicals to pharmaceutical Chemistry is the next frontier in his research interests. Dr. Lisouza currently serves as the Departmental Coordinator, Industrial Relations and Attachments, in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, SONAS, MMUST.
