Bengt Hjort

SEA Advisor, Adobe Technology

"I have lived about half my life in Ethiopia, and have a passion for the people and the country. Adobe has been my special interest, and through the university I have been responsible for research activities comprising field studies and erection of model houses in adobe and cement stabilized soil blocks near Durame, Kambata Region. I have also, together with some colleagues, published research papers related to the topic. In addition to this I have been a tutor for several Swedish Bachelor students doing their final thesis about sustainable low-cost housing in Ethiopia."
