Joshua is a lecturer at the University of Nairobi (UoN) Kenya in the department of Animal Production Faculty of Veterinary Medicine teaching Animal Genetics and Breeding.Prior to his appointment at the UoN he was research technologist on livestock breeding strategies for low input production systems operating project at International Livestock research Institute (ILRI) in the project on Capacity Building for Sustainable Use of AnGR in the Developing Countries. Joshua hold PhD in Animal Genetics and Breeding (2014), a Master of Science in Animal Breeding and Genetics (2007) and Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine (2001) from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Nairobi (UoN) Kenya. He studied Molecular Epidemiology and Genetics of swine enteric viruses in a sandwich program between Ohio State University (OSU) and UoN.

Joshua have interest in global one health research, particularly understanding the epidemiology of viral infectious disease pathogens at the human-animal interface to determine their genetic diversity in order to develop accurate diagnostic tools and to implement appropriate control strategies, including vaccine development for specific viral diseases of economic importance in Africa. Through my four years of research experience in areas of viral infectious diseases, I have grown increasingly interested in a wide variety of research areas, but particularly in virology, vaccines, animal models and epidemiology.
