Micah M. Mukolwe, Ph.D., M.Sc.

Dr. Micah M. Mukolwe received his PhD in Hydro-informatics (2016) from TU-Delft/UNESCO-IHE , and MSc in Water Science and Engineering (2011) from UNESCO-IHE. Currently, he is a Lecturer and the Chairperson of the Civil and Structural Engineering Department at Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST). He practices as an assistant civil engineer with respect to the feasibility, planning, structural design, and implementation of civil engineering infrastructure. His research interests include in probabilistic river hazard risk mapping as well as river hazard modelling.
