Dr. Eric Okuku

Dr Okuku has over 14 years in marine research ranging from marine ecology, pollution, plankton, biotoxins. He has lately been involved in GHG quantification, ocean acidification and use of radioisotopes to reconstruct pollution history and determine sediment accretion rates. He has coordinated more than 10 project in the last 10 years and has published a number of peer reviewed articles.
