Environmental remediation technologies (water and air purification) with emphasis on Photocatalytic Degradation methods. 2. Preparation of high efficient Nano Structured Titanium Dioxide Photocatalysts and their application on the control of environmental pollution 3. Development of new synthesis methods and technologies to induce visible light absorption in Titanium Dioxide Photocatalyst in order to make it usable under solar light irradiation in Photodegradation of environmental pollutants 4. Working with functionalised nanostructured materials

    Segomotso Bagwasi’s area of interest is in eco-friendly environmental remediation technologies with more emphasis on photocatalytic degradation techniques. Currently working on filtration technologies (water and air) in BITRI. At PhD level she worked on cost effective methods of inducing visible light absorption in nanostructured TiO2 (Titanium Dioxide).

    This was achieved by doping and co-doping TiO2 with transition metals and non-metal and evaluating its photocatalytic activity by degradation of several organic pollutants in waste water solutions. At masters level she did a Master’s degree in Science Technology specialising in Chemical Analysis and Laboratory Management. She previously worked at Botswana College of Agriculture analysing water, soil and plant materials. She is a member of ESALAMA; East and Southern Africa Laboratory Managers Association (Botswana chapter)
