Agnes is a results-oriented, energetic, early career researcher, who is passionate about applying health research to address critical questions in public health, to prevent premature death and disability. She enjoys travelling, playing volleyball and mentoring young children.

She graduated from Kenyatta university with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental health. She worked for 2 years under the Ministry of Health (Kenya) and gained in-depth experience in public health operations including community nutrition and disease surveillance. She is currently undertaking an integrated review of literature, to determine whether lack of adequate Iron and vitamin D during early childhood, has any effect on child development, in the short and long term. She is looking forward to being involved in health research programs in Kenya and beyond, that are aimed at finding practical solutions to a myriad of health problems affecting the community.
