What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research

I am currently an assistant lecturer in the school of Life Sciences and Bioengineering (LiSBE) at the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) and a recently registered PhD fellow at the University of Dar es Salaam. My previous research studies had focused on assessing the unexplored bridge between stunting and Environmental Enteric Dysfunction (EED) through Water, sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH). My PhD research interest is in microbiome studies that have been triggered by the current focus on host-pathogen underlying interaction. I look forward to advocate for the importance of preprints in academia and research.

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

Joining the ASAPbio Fellows program as a PhD student will support my academic and professional growth. I seek to connect with experienced peers and researchers in the field of open science and scholarly communication, the ASAPbio Fellows program provides the platform for such engagements in the scientific community. By participating in the ASAPbio Fellows program, my objective is to enhance my limited skills in preprint publishing, data sharing, peer review, and science communication, all of which are integral to advancing open science practices.

What are you excited about in science communication?

I am excited to be part of an active community that drive real time change in our communities. I look forward to strong mentorship as well as learning more about pre-prints.
