He then joined the University of Pretoria, South Africa to pursue his further studies and obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the same University. In 2014, he joined the Centre for Water Resources Research (CWRR) based at the University of KwaZulu-Natal as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. His research interest lie in the area of irrigation scheduling, modelling of water and solute transport, sustainable use of sewage sludge and effluent, water quality, and isotope hydrology. In his recent work, he focused in assessing nutrient fate in buried sewage sludge as well as in using anaerobic baffled reactor effluent in agriculture, hydraulic assessment of platinum tailings, hydropedology of selected hillslopes on halfway house granites, and characterizing hydraulic and physical properties of northern Zululand coastal soils.
