I have over 20 years of experience in agricultural research for development. I have worked in various areas that include both on-station and on-farm research; facilitating agribusiness cluster formation; integrating farming systems to markets; and creating platforms for farmers, researchers, extension staff and other entrepreneurs.



I have taught and supervised thesis work of undergraduate students. I have extensive experience in the design and delivery of training sessions on the development and strengthening of agribusiness clusters and commodity value chains as well as integrated soil fertility management, seed and crop production targeted at adult learners. I have participated in the production of many extension materials.


My interest is in value chain analyses and in developing linkages between farmers, advisory services and business as well as promoting systems that will enhance agricultural development and trade.
