Biography

I completed first degree (2008) and masters degree (2011) in Human nutrition in Tanzania. In 2015 I was awarded the Commonwealth scholarship and joined University of Surrey for PhD studies in the Department of Nutritional Sciences.  My PhD research focused on understanding the role of nutrition, body composition and inflammation in responses to anaemia management therapy among haemodialysis patients. In 2018 i was awarded the Schlumberger Foundation fellowship and continued researching on the feasibility of low impact exercise intervention - facilitated with activity tracking devices on haemodialysis patients.

I joined the School of Health Sciences from January 2020 for a seven months post funded by HEIF to assist with the research activities of Digital health research group. In November 2020, I was appointed as the Post-doctoral Research Fellow in Digital Innovation for NIHR ARC Kent Surrey and Sussex.
