    Describe your research

    I am an Entomologist by profession with over 15 years of experience. My focus has been on developing Integrated Pest Management strategies for staple and horticultural crop systems. Significant contributions have been in the fields of integrated pest management in staple crops and vegetable ecosystems, thrips biology and management, plant virology, virus –vector relationships, insect virology (especially baculoviruses) and edible insect research. I currently head the Arthropod pathology unit at ICIPE and co-ordinate the Fall Armyworm IPM research activities at icipe. To pursue my research focus and objectives, I have extensively involved in grant development and resource mobilization. I have established a global network of partners; collaborators and stakeholders with diverse expertise in IPM systems especially vegetables. My partnerships extend to ~40 organizations spread over 18 countries in 6 continents. Capacity building in Africa for IPM and climate change research has been one of my primary focusses with mentoring of more than 4 Postdoc, 10 Phd, 6 Masters and several undergraduates and technicians.
