History: Young Expert at Vitens Evides International - Malawi

Position after YEP

Civil/Hydraulic Engineer at Lilongwe Water Board, Malawi

Current Role

As a young professional, I worked on developing hydraulic models for Lilongwe Water Board (LWB) with technical assistance from VEI. I was also responsible for water network analysis and design. My mate, Ante Zoric was coaching me on how to use GIS along with hydraulic modelling applications. I transferred my technical skills to the newly recruited engineers at LWB. My other responsibility was sharing general issues on Malawian culture and how it impacts the organisational behaviour, security and tourism. With the introduced Young Water Professionals at LWB, I was geared to represent the YEP and share its goals. I was also one of the Young Water Professionals initiate its establishment at National level.
