With immense pride and joy, the Institute of Oceanography and Environment (INOS) congratulates Prof. Aidy Mohamed Shawal on his remarkable achievement of being awarded an Australia Awards Fellowship. This prestigious accolade is a testament to Prof. Aidy’s exceptional expertise and dedication to advancing critical research areas in disaster management and geographic information systems.

The Australia Awards Fellowship, extended by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), brings to light Prof. Aidy’s significant contributions to disaster management. The fellowship is hosted by the University of Technology Sydney, where Prof. Aidy will lead the project titled ‘R182139 – Building Health Resiliency Systems through Multilateral and Interdisciplinary WASH Interventions’. This initiative underscores Prof. Aidy’s expertise and highlights his invaluable role in strengthening Australia’s engagement with the Asia-Pacific region.

The project’s heart lies in exploring Geographic Information System (GIS) and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technologies to bolster disaster management and health system resilience. Prof. Aidy’s contributions will play a pivotal role in unlocking the potential of these innovative technologies to safeguard vulnerable communities affected by disasters, particularly those grappling with water, sanitation, and hygiene challenges.
