Duncan Kikoyo, Ph.D., has joined the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) team as a research specialist. His work will focus on the development and implementation of watershed protection plans, total maximum daily loads and their implementation plans, and other projects that address critical water issues in Texas.
He is most excited about working with the community of the TWRI water team.
“TWRI water researchers have a wealth of knowledge and expertise. They really help 'make every drop count’ in Texas,” he said.
Kikoyo has a bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering from Makerere University in Uganda, a master’s degree in water resources management from University of Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania and a doctorate in biological and agricultural engineering from Texas A&M University.
He learned about TWRI during his doctoral studies at Texas A&M.
“During my Ph.D., I became familiar with some of the work done by TWRI, which was very much in sync with my research aspirations,” Kikoyo said.
Prior to joining TWRI, Kikoyo has worked as an environmental engineer, a research assistant in a watershed modeling course and a hydrologist for the Texas Commission for the Environment Quality.
