My name is Oscar Wambuguh (wam-bow-gho). I have been teaching at California State University, East Bay since 2000 in Biology and Health Sciences. In the new semester system starting fall 2018, I primarily will be teaching a combination of these courses: BIOL 420, BIOL 497, BIOL 490, HSC 100, HSC 115, HSC 300, HSC 327, HSC 340, HSC 362, HSC 385, HSC 405, HSC 420, HSC 470, HSC 485, HSC 490, HSC 497, HSC 499A. I also direct the Pre-Professional Health Academic Program (PHAP). This is a formal post-baccalaureate program preparing students for doctoral careers in medicine (allopathic & osteopathic), dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, veterinary science, podiatry, physical therapy and occupational health.
My area of research focus is environmental health management. Today, it is now beyond doubt that our own human activities have greatly contributed to accelerated global warming and subsequent climate change over the last three decades. With these rapid changes in the world we live in, finding ways in which we can live more sustainably on this planet is of great interest to us, non-scientists and scientists alike. My research focuses on the conservation of biological diversity, solid waste disposal and recycling efforts in communities, renewable energy technologies (RETs) development, and health effects of pesticides particularly in the world’s developing nations. In the last few years, I have also become more engaged in the scholarship of teaching and learning. I have written two books and published several articles on these topics.
