Dr Muge's Bio

I'm a holder of BSc (Biochemistry & Chemistry) and MSc (Biochemistry) from the University of Nairobi, Kenya and PhD (Plant Genomics) from University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna, Austria.
Im currently a Senior lecturer at the Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Science & Technology, University of Nairobi.
I lecture both undergraduate and postgraduate students in various aspects of Biochemistry
My research interests are:
1. Plant and Microbial secondary metabolites as source of new drug compounds.
2. Environmental biotechnology
