Message From the DVC Research and Innovation

Research and innovation are core to the identity and purpose of a university.

At Strathmore University, we are always pushing the boundaries of new knowledge and experiences. For this reason, I am pleased to present to you our research and innovation reports over the years.

In 2019, our researchers published 43 papers in peer-reviewed journals. Unfortunately, this represents the first decline in the number of publications published within one year since we started keeping records.

We do not anticipate that the decline will continue, but we reiterate our commitment to become the best we can be in this area. We also published nine book chapters and presented 63 papers at various
conferences in Kenya and around the world.

I hope that, as you read through various sections of the website, you will be inspired to continue doing the work you do, or, if you are not already affiliated with SU, that you will find areas of common interest in which we can partner in future.

Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research and Innovation

Researcher Spotlight

Generally my work is focused on issues related to electricity access from multiple perspectives. First, I look at grid connected systems and the criteria used by households when deciding to acquire appliances. When a home is newly connected to electricity, lighting is the first device acquired. But what happens thereafter?

I also look at the issue of electricity reliability with a focus on healthcare facilities. Connection to the grid is not sufficient if electricity access is sporadic. This has been crucial especially now with the COVID-19 pandemic. What is the impact on patients when diesel is used as a back-up to run medical equipment during a blackout?

Finally, I look at electrotechnical quality standards from the perspective of the end-user. We assume that consumers will purchase products based on the certification and quality label associated with it. However, we have found that consumers will not necessarily check for the quality label but will rather buy appliances based on recommendations from friends or what they can find at the market. This area is far less coordinated than many would like to think and requires a sociological approach.
