I am a veterinarian and a senior lecturer at the department of Public Health Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Nairobi. I have an interest in application of economic concepts, methods and tools in disease control and prevention. The aim is to contribute to wellbeing of members of society through advising national governments on appropriate policies to improve on production and distribution of safe food to the society within sub-Saharan Africa. My primary strategy is partnerships and creation of positive relationships for science and humanity.
