Bio

As a young leader, I’ve grown through student leadership and activism, to policy advocacy at a national, regional and global scale. I have been a panel discussant at the World Bank head quarters in Washington Dc on the topic; Ensuring Access to Agricultural Innovation in Africa: African Perspectives. I’m a 2018 Cornell Global Leadership Fellow (USA) and a member of global network of science champions for sustainable development. I’m currently the Science Communication and Policy officer at Science Foundation for Livelihoods and Development. Last year 2017, I co-founded the Youth for Science and Development- East Africa, with the objective to build a youthful movement of science enthusiasts from various disciplines to play a pivotal role in filling the public knowledge gap and advocate for appropriate scientific innovations to solve societal challenges like climate change, food security and environmental sustainability. At regional level, I’ve contributed to the formulation of the East African Community Science, Technology and Innovations Policy. I’ve severally addressed Members of Parliament (About the National Biotechnology and Biosafety Bill) and presented at national and international conferences. I seasonally write articles and feature in news and Investigative broadcast stories to demystify biotechnology and technology in general.
