She has a vast experience in Fisheries, Aquaculture, Wetlands and environmental toxicology. She is currently pursuing her PhD in Fisheries at Kisii University. She holds a Master of Science Degree in Marine and Lacustrine Science and Management, a BSc Degree in Fisheries and Aquatic Science and a diploma in Analytical Chemistry. She is a trained in Marine Spatial Mapping, Marine Biogeographic Data Management, Scientific Cruise Planning, Oceanographic sampling Fisheries and Data Management, Environmental Science, Limnology and Wetland Ecosystems, and Monitoring and Evaluation. She and her colleagues did a novel/innovative study on “Adding value to our produce” where they formulated the 1st seaweed bath soap and other products using locally grown seaweeds in the Kenya Coast which has seen KMFRI and other organizations set up a factory to formulate seaweed products at Kibuyuni, South Coast. She has carried out research in environmental toxicology using Asellus aquaticus as a test organism. Currently she is working on catch assessment survey of coastal artisanal fisheries, fish stock assessment along the Kenyan Coast and on bioaccumulation and biomagnification of trace metals and pesticides in the food chain and Assessment of Human health risk. Other research projects she has participated in include National Research Fund (NRF) and National Council of Science Technology and Innovation (NACOSTI). She has published 8 papers in peer reviewed journals, and has presented over 15 papers in both international and national scientific conferences.
