CSUD welcomes visiting scholar Japheths Onyango Kabaka Ogendi
Japheths Onyango Kabaka Ogendi will be joining CSUD as a visiting scholar for two weeks in October and November, sponsored by the newly-formed Volvo Research and Educational Foundations’ PhD Student exchange program. Mr. Ogendi is a PhD candidate at Maseno University School of Public Health and Community Development in Kenya and an affiliate at African Centre of Excellence for Studies in Public and Non-motorised Transport (ACET), a fellow VREF Centre of Excellence. Mr. Ogendi will be working with CSUD to carry out joint research on the various safety measures aimed at promoting walking and cycling in New York City and how these strategies might be applicable to urban areas in Kenya. Through his visit, CSUD also expects to develop a stronger partnership between CSUD and ACET and to discuss research on urban safety measures more broadly.
