    Daniel is an environmental engineer whose research focuses on sustainable sanitation and integrated natural resource management. He joined SEI in September 2017 and works within the Sustainable Sanitation Initiative and the TRASE platform.

    At SEI, he contributes to the development of the Resource Value Mapping (REVAMP) tool for estimating the potential of resource recovery from urban waste streams and the backend of the SEI-PCS tool (Spatially Explicit Information on Production to Consumption Systems) on which TRASE is based. He also engages in capacity development efforts for stakeholders in the urban water and sanitation sector.

    Prior to joining SEI, Daniel worked at Makerere University and at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) on research projects to investigate the feasibility of using faecal sludge as a solid industrial fuel, develop a methodology for rapid quantification and characterization of faecal sludge at city-scale and on assessing the appropriateness of sanitation technologies and systems. He also worked as an independent consultant designing decentralized faecal sludge treatment plants, conducting environment impact assessments and developing strategies for improving industrial wastewater management for clients such as the Water for People (Rwanda) and the National Water & Sewerage Corporation of Uganda.

    Daniel holds an MSc in Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure from KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden) and a BSc in Civil Engineering from Makerere University, Kampala (Uganda). He has also been trained in the Global Village for Future Leaders of Business and Industry programme at Lehigh University (USA).
