Areas of expertise

  • Water Science and Engineering


After completing his BSc (hons) in Environmental and Safety Engineering, Samuel worked as a Graduate Teaching and Research Assistant at the Environmental and Safety Engineering Department, University of Mines and Technology (UMaT). He then moved on to Cranfield University, where he completed his MSc in Water and Wastewater Engineering. During his MSc thesis, he investigated the Effects of Wavelength Mixing Ratio on the Growth, Remediation Performance, Biochemical Composition and Calorific Value of Microalgae used for Wastewater Treatment.

Current activities

Currently, Samuel's research interests focus on using new and existing technologies for the advanced removal of natural organic matter (NOM) from source waters used for drinking. He is actively pursuing a PhD in Securing Drinking Water Supplies: the role of organic matter on water treatability. The project is part of the Water Infrastructure and Resilience (WIRe) Centre for Doctoral Training (

Samuel aims to determine organic matter features in lowland surface waters that control their removal in water treatment processes.
