Nicholas Outa

Consultant, Writer, and Editor in Kenya

I am a PhD student and part-time lecturer in Fisheries and Aquaculture at Maseno University in Kenya. I possess a Master of Science degree in Limnology and Wetland Management from UNESCO-IHE, Netherlands, BOKU University, Austria and Egerton University, Kenya, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Applied Aquatic Science from Egerton University, Kenya.

Furthermore, I have a significant publication record, with over 40 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals. In addition to my academic pursuits, I am a Research Capacity Advisor on scientific writing and Communication at the Training Centre in Communication (TCC-Africa) and a mentor for early career researchers at Eider Africa.

I am also the founder of WritingHub Africa, an organization that provides training and mentorship on scientific writing and publishing, data analysis, and grant proposal writing. I am a powerful advocate for mental health in academia and the democratization of science through citizen science and open science practices.

Currently, I am the head of Moderation and Curation at AfricArXiv, a pan-African open-access repository, and a reviewer for several scientific journals, including Frontiers in Aquatic Foods, the African Journal of Food, Agriculture, Nutrition and Development, and Lakes and Reservoirs Journal and an Academic Editorial Board Member at PloS One and CABI journals.

I am the Co-Founder of Dala Integrated Aquaculture Hub, a training hub for local smallholder farmers on climate-smart farming technologies to enhance food and nutrition security among local communities in Kenya and beyond.

My current research is on ‘Multi-loop Aquaponic system for water and nutrient efficiency in food production in peri-urban communities in Kenya. I have also taken part in several research projects on fisheries, aquaculture, and the blue economy in Kenya and East Africa, and I am open to opportunities for collaboration and consulting.
