Research to build knowledge & teach to encourage learning!

My career objective is to build upon my existing research and science education skill set in analytical chemistry and chemical biology as a faculty who is committed to undergraduate education, community development, and advancement in environmental science.


I am interested in understanding fate and transport of organic pollutants in the built and natural environment.

Quality Education

I am committed to understanding how students from different economic, cultural, and social background learn.


I believe science should not be hidden in big words, it should be accessible and open for it to have a great impact.

Sanganyado. an environmental chemistry researcher

I have 4+ years’ experience teaching undergraduate chemical and biological science classes in Zimbabwe and the US. Furthermore, I have industrial experience having worked as an analytical chemistry. In the past ten years, I have conducted research across four continents through collaborations and research fellowships.
