Background 

I obtained my undergraduate degree in BSc. Biochemistry from Karatina university in Kenya. It was a rigourous four years of classwork, practical and project work. I did my undergaduate desertation on the topic " Comparative analysis of heavy metals in Brassica oleracea from Nairobi and Karatina." My research skills were partly sharpened at KEMRI, Nairobi where i went as a student intern. from my undergradute I could not get a job in research fields, but I worked as medical representative of Beta Healthcare Int'l ltd.

I am currently an Msc. Biotechnology student at the University of Pretoria working on a project that aims at comparing the natural obtained M.ciceri strains from different parts of the world and the commercial brands on their ability to nodulate Ciceri arietinum in South Africa.
