Mr. Philip Amuyunzu Mang’are.

Philip Amuyunzu Mang’are is a Lecturer of Physics in the Department of Physics who has done multidisciplinary researches focussing on applications of Electronics and Physics generally in solving Biological challenges. His focus has been on malaria. His PHD thesis title was ‘INVESTIGATION OF THE ACOUSTIC PROPAGATION PARAMETERS AND STARTLE RESPONSE OF THE FEMALE Anopheles gambiae  BY NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC ULTRASOUND’ which yielded impressive results. He has authored a numbers of research papers and high school textbooks. He is a member of the Biophysical Society and the President of the Biophysical Society, Kenya chapter. He holds various leadership positions in Community Based Organisations (CBO), Huru International and in the University’s Academic Staff Union (UASU). He has contributed to community wellbeing through Anti-jigger campaigns, advocacy, house construction, home improvements, professional and motivational talks, and mentorship. He currently serves on various Board of managementof schools which include: Madira Girls High school, Igunga Girls High school, Bishop Sulumeti- Hamisi Girls High school, and Ebubayi Mixed secondary school. He is currently the Chairman of the Physics Welfare Association, and also the Physics departmental coordinator of attachment, excursions and linkages.

Some of his key published works include: -
