PhD (University of Reading),
My career began in Kenya, where I was a Research Scientist at the National Museums of Kenya (1993-2008). I have a BSc and MPhil from Moi University (Kenya), PhD from University of Reading (UK), and postdoctoral stints at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew (UK), Rutgers University (USA) and KU Leuven (Belgium). Since 2006, I have been teaching courses in Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology and my research is predominantly on Angiosperm Systematics.
