Professional Profile

I am a highly motivated, dedicated and passionate global citizen with several years of experience working on research and development of therapeutics in pharmaceutical companies, academia and research institutions.

It is my goal to see a prosperous Africa where everyone has access to high standard of living characterized by addressing inequalities in education, health and economic status through research in science, innovation and technology.

I want to play my part by becoming a role model in scientific research and leadership to Africans in general and African women in particular
