Commonwealth Academic Fellow visits the Department

Assessing natural groundwater replenishment in Uganda

Dr. Michael Owor, a Senior Lecturer and Head of the Department of the Geology and Petroleum Studies at Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. has joined UCL Geography for the Autumn Term as a Commonwealth Academic Fellow.

Dr Owor’s Fellowship research focuses on the relationship between rainfall and groundwater recharge in the Upper Nile Basin in Uganda. At UCL he is working with Professor Richard Taylor to develop and refine analytical tools and models to quantify groundwater recharge and assess the relationship between rainfall intensity and observed groundwater recharge.

Groundwater is the primary source of domestic water across Uganda and the target of increasing irrigation development to enhance food security in this region. Michael presented outputs from his research at a Departmental Lunchtime Seminar on Thursday December 5th.
