Research


Dr Doorga’s research interests focus on renewable energy, climate change, and environmental conservation in Mauritius and the African continent. He has more than 10 publications on the investigations of solar, wind, wave and ocean thermal energies in high impact factor Elsevier/Springer journals. He is currently collaborating with international and local universities (UK, USA, Mauritius) on projects to address the problem of coastal erosion, flooding and sea level rise in Mauritius.
