Work experience
Presently, I am a Professor at the University of Gezira. During the last ten years the research emphasis (as a department of Environmental Sciences and Natural Resources) were mainly on desertification. Our site was the Northern-west of the Gezira (Getaina area). Our research was (Problem solving oriented training). As an advisor, I was co-supervising a Ph. D. candidate and also two M. Sc. Candidates both have identification of desertification sources and origin of sand physics and sand movement, combating desertification using trees, screening of adaptable efficient trees, water harvest techniques to establish trees in such harsh areas, socioeconomic of desertified areas. Our coming research include Northern Butana area.
