I have a good knowledge of soil biological processes and the application of bio fertilisers comprising fungi and bacteria and their role in plant processes and specifically in improving the use of soil nutrients and water. I have a keen interest in statistics and using computer modelling to understand the underlying nature of the biology interaction of soils, microbes and plants. I look forward to learning more about soil and plant relationship using contemporary genetics, sampling and digital data analysis and statistics.
Before starting with the PhD position, I was working at PlantWorks and was responsible for trials design, sampling, processing, and analysis about plant treatments with Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) and Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR).
In 2018 I completed a masters on Applied ecology and environmental management at CCCU with modules on the science and policy of the environment. The dissertation’s title was How do agricultural activities change soil chemical properties in banana fields in Kilimanjaro Rural District, Tanzania. Before the MSc, I completed my undergraduate degree at the same university on Ecology and Conservation, and the thesis for the degree was titled “Impact of agricultural management practices on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal diversity found in home gardens in Kilimanjaro rural district, Tanzania”
