    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    I am an experienced systems biologist with over twelve years of research and teaching experience in biomedicine. I am particularly interested in dynamic modelling of DNA repair pathways, computational biology of immune regulatory response pathways, computational biology of somatic stem cells, predictive microbiology of spores (Bacillus subtilis and Clostridium botulinum), public health issues, and related topics.

    Along with my research and teaching responsibilities, I spearhead the corporate social responsibility project AgriFoodAID. This blog has a primary focus on educating smallholders in the rural communities of sub-Saharan Africa on food security matters. Working with vulnerable groups (students, participants, and women farmers) has shaped my communication of and participation in science, contributing substantially to alleviating poverty, my greatest ambition.
