Enoh Jeanot Fongoh

Portrait of Enoh Jeanot Fongoh, young researcher in hydrogeology, native from Cameroon.


My name is ENOH JEANOT FONGOH, 29 years old, and I come from Yaounde, Cameroon, Central Africa.

How long are you in Besançon ?

In line with my fellowship program, I am expected to spend 6 months in Besancon for a period of 3 years. I am presently in the sixth month of my second stay in Besancon.

What is your background before coming to the lab ?

I am holder of a Bachelor of Science degree in geology and Master of Science in Applied geology from the University of Buea, Cameroon. My research interest during my master studies was focused on hydrogeology. After my Master, I was opportune to be recruited as an assistant researcher in the Institute of Geological and Mining Research (IRGM), Cameroon where till present I am working under the Hydrological Research Centre. While working at the research centre, I enrolled for a PhD program at the postgraduate school of pure and applied science, Faculty of science, University of Douala, Cameroon.

Why come to this lab ?
I came to the lab to analysis my water samples and to work with other students, researchers and professionals in my field. My work is directed in the lab by Prof. Hélène CELLE and it is under a technical cooperation project RAF7019 to promote young researchers/students in Africa to use isotope tracers for water resources management. It is sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

What is your research topic and what will you do during your stay here ?

My research topic is characterization of basement aquifers in Yaounde for better management of water resources. During my stay, I am working on presentation and interpretations of my data to permit me write good publications and my thesis. Also, I participate in field works and activities that will enhance my research skills.
