Banda’s current Ph.D. research focuses on globalization, higher education, and sustainable development in the global south – exploring the complex decision-making process by international students (and academic diaspora in Canada) to stay in host countries or return to countries of origin after studies, and the impact of such decisions on national development in their native homelands.

He is a counsellor, psychosocial educator, and facilitator in Partner Assault Response (PAR) program, working with men who are charged with domestic violence and abuse towards intimate partners, to better understand domestic violence and abuse, and learn non-violent strategies and skills to engage in healthy relationships.
