Pamela Opio Acheng is a CSC-funded DPhil student at the University of Oxford.
Her current research focuses on the development of a decision tool for the resilience of transport networks to climate change. Her research shall use remote sensing satellite data to investigate the vulnerability of selected transport networks in Eastern Africa and use the results of this analysis to conduct a transport disruption and economic trade flow model. The outcomes of her work will aid in the development of a theoretical framework for a decision tool for climate-resilient transport networks.
Before joining Oxford in 2022, Pamela was an Assistant Lecturer at the College of Engineering, Design, Art, and Technology at Makerere University. Pamela has been the coordinator for e-learning for the School of Built Environment at Makerere University and an Assistant Research Coordinator for Undergraduate Research. She has also worked with the Ministry of Works and Transport, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and the Construction Sector Transparency Initiative where she played important roles in the design, supervision, implementation, and monitoring of infrastructure projects.
