I am a Geomatic Engineering graduate from Jomo Kenyatta University. I had my first exposure to research through an attachment at an agricultural research institute. Since then I have had a never-ending quest to gaining spatial statistics tools and applying them as decision-making tools in research. I joined KEMRI through the IDeAL PGD internship program and I am currently working on analyzing the spatial and temporal patterns of RSV virus. My research interests include but are not limited to spatial statistics and modelling for public health, phylogeographic analysis of genomic data, epidemiology and modelling of disease transmission dynamics within space and across time.

Other pass time interests include swimming, interior décor and fashion.
