What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your work or line of research
I am a public health specialist and social scientist. My broad professional interest is in helping to improve public/global health, improve scientific practices in Africa, and inform policy to shape the equitable, responsible, and beneficial participation of health and biomedical scientific activities (especially in Africa).
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
I am excited to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program because of my deep rooted interest in preprints and in making science communication as well as other scientific opportunities more open especially for African scientists. This involves liaising closely with like-minded researchers, individuals, and institutions to see how to make this a reality.
I’d love to use this channel to connect with more open-science enthusiasts and to learn how to make science better for all (for instance through preprints).
Ask me about…
These days when I’m not on my laptop (computer) “thinking about how to make science more open”, I’m usually watching comedy; discussing with family; and taking care of my surroundings.
