Personal profile

Personal Statement

Research Interests
Marc is a PhD researcher at the University of Strathclyde, department of civil and environmental engineering. His research interests concern the relationships between continental rift-related alkaline igneous intrusions and groundwater chemistry in southern Malawi. He has a particular interest in water-rock interactions with specific volcanic rocks to determine the potential origins of various groundwater-related health issues facing Malawians, including; salinity, iodine and fluoride contamination. Groundwater salinity is the main focus of his research as this particular issue is prevalent in southern Malawi. Many boreholes drilled for drinking water produce highly saline groundwater and there is currently no consensus on the source of contamination. This research hopes to have wider implications all over the world where saline-contaminated groundwater is found in inland aquifers. Marc is funded by the Scottish Government: Climate Justice Fund, Water Futures Programme which works in assisting Malawi to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6 ‘Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all’.
 
Marc achieved a BSc. (Hons) degree in Earth Science at the university of Glasgow 2012-2016 and an MSc. In Hydrogeology at the university of Strathclyde 2016-2017. He has extensive geological and hydrogeological field work experience across Scotland, Spain and Africa.
 
Marc also works as a teaching assistant at the University of Strathclyde on the MSc. Hydrogeology course which includes assignment marking and tutoring various subjects.
