Research interests: 

Some of my research interests are mainly motivated by the needs of the communities that live in close proximity to University of Zululand. These include:

  1. Renewable energy with emphasis on photovoltaic cell (materials, devices and application).
  2. Appropriate application of Semiconductor Gas Sensors as UNIZULU is surrounded by many gas pollutant industries

As associate members of the SA-CERN collaboration under ATLAS Experiment, the interest lies in Instrumentation and Data Control system.
