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)
