Biography

Kingsley Emwinyore Agho, BSc, BEd, MSc, MEng, Ph.D., MPH, is a Senior Lecturer in Biostatistics at the School of Science and Health, Western Sydney University, Australia. Before joining Western Sydney University, Kingsley has had research and teaching experience from the University of Sydney and University of Newcastle. He has over 15 years’ experience in the design and analysis of large epidemiological studies including longitudinal and cluster RCT data. Another key research interest of Kingsley is in Epidemiology, International health and water management and engineering– one to one water saving program for high water users. He has supervised 14 Ph.D. and 2 Masters by research students and currently supervises 3 Ph.D. students.

Kingsley has a track record of over 150 peer-reviewed journal articles (H-Index=36, > 4240 citations, April 2019) and he is an associate editor of BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth. Kingsley is a chief investigator on six NHMRC project grants (worth over 12 million) on reducing malnutrition and mortality in Bangladeshi and Laos children and a founding member of the South Asia Infant Feeding Research Network (SAIFRN) funded by AusAID. SAIFRN seeks to improve infant and young child feeding practices and reduce infant mortality in the South Asian region and the network included Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Kingsley’s research leadership in international health, nutrition, and public health have influenced key areas of government policy, especially in Nigeria, Tanzania, Nepal, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka through the South Asian Infant Feeding Research Network. Kingsley's paper on "Determinant of exclusive breastfeeding in Nigeria" was used for independent advocacy for improving appropriate Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) practices in Nigeria, where over 2300 children under-five lose their life daily - the largest contributor to child mortality in Africa
