Bsc in Medical Microbiology. Graduated in 2009 from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology

How did you get here?

I was in love with microbiology until I met mothers and children in my rural village in Teso where I was working with global network on a community based study named "Zinc Absorption from Micronutrient Powder Is Low but Is not Affected by Iron in Kenyan Infants" a study that we have already published. While in the process of publishing the article, I saw an advert for a position of research assistant in an interesting study involving improvement of maternal and child health through the use of android phones. I was shortlisted for interview and luckily, I impressed the panel and therefore had a chance to work with an amazing team that I love and treasure.
