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. I primarily teach these courses: BIOL 4820, BIOL 3999, HSC 2001, HSC 3200, HSC 3250, HSC 4500 and HSC 4700. 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. I also direct biomedical sciences (BMS) training for Project Lead The Way (PLTW), a nationwide non-profit leader in STEM education for K-12 schools, closely affiliated with CSUEB since 2009.
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.
