Julius Matsiko is the Deputy Director Research, Innovation, Consultancy, and Extension at Kampala International University (KIU). Prior to that, he served as a Part-time Lecturer at Busitema University, and as a Teaching Assistant at the College of Education and External Studies at Makerere University and the Department of Chemistry at Ndejje University before that.
He holds a Doctorate Degree in Environmental Sciences from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing-China, and a Master of Education in Educational Psychology, a Master of Science in Chemistry, plus a Bachelor of Science with education, all from Makerere University in Kampala-Uganda.
He has co-authored and published a number of articles in reputable journals like the Scientific Reports, the Science of the Total Environment, and the journals on Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety, and Environmental Pollution to mention but a few. Matsiko has made poster presentations, and participated in conferences like The 1st International High-Level Forum on Toxicology and Health of Air Pollution in Beijing-China in 2018, and The 9th National Conference on Environmental Chemistry in Hangzhou-China. He has also achieved academic awards like the award for Excellent International Graduate in 2019, the Shimadzu Award in 2018, and the CAS–TWAS Presidents’ Fellowship for International PhD Students.
Matsiko has trained in environmental monitoring techniques for a wide range of environmental pollutants, and has hands-on experience with the analysis of samples from different environmental media and basic data analysis using common statistics softwares. His research interests include Environmental monitoring, Environmental impact assessment, Environmental engineering, Theoretical and computational environmental chemistry, Ecological toxicology, Climate change, and Data analysis. He is a Member of the Welfare And Interpersonal Harassment Committees in the School of Psychology at Makerere University, and a Member of the University’s Exhibitions Committee at Busitema University.
