Dr. Edmond Sanganyado is a researcher in the Marine Biology Institute at Shantou University (Guangdong, China). He obtained his B.Sc. in Applied Chemistry (2008) from the National University of Science and Technology in Zimbabwe and his Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology (2016) from the University of California Riverside in the US. Edmond received the Fulbright Fellowship in 2011 and the Zhujiang Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2017.
Edmond’s research focuses on the application of fundamentals of analytical chemistry and geochemistry in understanding the sources, fate, transport, and toxicity of legacy and emerging chemical pollutants in freshwater and marine environments. He has initiated and led several international collaborations with researchers from the Global South on environmental sustainability and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
Edmond has made considerable contributions in science policy and ethics in chemistry research. His work has been featured in Science, Retraction Watch and Publons, as well as listed as an important resource by university libraries such as University of British Columbia. Recently, he was awarded the first prize in MDPI Science Writing Competition (2018) for his outstanding essay on open science and climate change. He is currently an editor at Scientific African, a multidisciplinary scientific journal operated by Next Einstein Forum.
