Contribution to Science: The West Institute Africa hosts Dr. Angela Moreno

Dr. Angela MorenoOn March 6, 2014, the West Africa Institute hosted Dr. Angela Moreno, a PhD graduate in Biosystems Engineering from the Technical University of Lisbon in Portugal. Undertaking a research on the topic "hydrological modeling and irrigation in conditions of scarcity for the management of water on the island of Santiago, Cabo Verde’’, Ms. Moreno defended her thesis on 25th July 2013. It is important to note that Ms. Moreno did a three-month professional attachment at the University of Siegen, Cologne, Germany.

Dr. Moreno’s research focused on the capacity to grow crops on arid soils under drought conditions. During her doctoral training, she developed an innovative technology to support the growing of crops in arid and semi -arid regions with a minimal amount of water.

Dr. Angela Moreno plans to invest in Cabo Verde in the field of Agricultural Development to support the efforts of the Ministry of Rural Development, and would also like to make the findings of her research known across the African continent.
