Charles Mitto Kosore works in the directorate of ocean and coastal systems (OCS). He currently studies Land-Based Anthropogenic Activities and their Influence on Microplastics and Heavy Metals Pollution in Kenya’s Marine and Coastal Environments. Kosore has been awarded a grant by the Committee for Research and Exploration of the National Geographic Society as the principal investigator in the study of Marine Plastic pollution in Kenya’s Marine Environment: Assessing the Impact of Plastic Bags Ban. He has published five peer reviewed journals.
