Dioha Emmanuel studied for an undergraduate degree in Geology at the Anambra State University (2008), after which he served the nation (NYSC) between 2009/10 at the Raw Materials Research and Development Council, Abuja. He then moved to Germany for an MSc in Hydrogeology and Environmental Geoscience at the Georg-August-University Goettingen which he completed in (2013). He then joined the service of the Federal University of Technology Owerri as an Assistant Lecturer in the Geology Department (2014).

Dioha has to his credit ten publications and has attended several national and international conferences and workshops. He is very proficient in the use of ArcGIS 10.0 and Visual Modflow packages for groundwater modelling.


Research Interests

Dioha’s primary research interests include; Aquifer characterization, vulnerability assessment of aquifers and implications to national and international security and renewable energy (small hydropower plants). He is currently working on Contaminant Hydrogeology with interest in the transport and remediation of organic and inorganic contaminants in groundwater and contaminated land systems of the Niger Delta region in Nigeria and is willing to welcome any proposal in this regards.
