About the Author

Njenga Mburu holds an MSc. and a BSc. degrees in Civil Engineering obtained, respectively, in 1997 and 2004, from the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), Juja, Kenya. He is a graduate member of the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK), the Institute of Engineers of Kenya (IEK), and a licensed lead Expert with the National Environmental Management Authority in Kenya.

After his undergraduate studies, he worked as a hydrologist for the Ministry of Water in Kenya. Between 2002-2004, in the course of his post-graduate studies at JKUAT, he served as a part-time lecturer at the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and was also engaged as a training logistics officer at the African Institute for Capacity Development (AICAD), Juja, Kenya.

Njenga's research focuses on performance evaluation and mechanistic simulation of the subsurface constructed wetland for wastewater treatment. His current research interests include sustainable sanitation concepts and appropriate pollution prevention technologies for the developing countries.

Njenga Mburu is currently a lecturer in the department of Civil and Structural Engineering at the Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, Kakamega, Kenya. He teaches both undergraduate and post-graduate courses in water and wastewater treatment, and public health engineering.
