I am a Ph.D. candidate at the School of Environmental Studies-Queen's University, Ontario, Canada. In research, I have a passion for and interest in agriculture-food related research with a focus on small-scale farming systems in Africa. My broad areas of interest are to explore how policies can propel agriculture innovations (technologies) and their adoption, acceptance, and use among under-resourced farmers of Sub-Saharan Africa. As a researcher, I employ qualitative techniques to explore and understand socially and economically sound solutions addressing day to day livelihood and environmental challenges of rural communities. In 2019, I co-founded MAVUNO LAB www.mavunolab.org, one of the first post-harvest innovation centers based in Morogoro town, with a mission to develop low cost and affordable technologies, products, and services to mitigate post-harvest food losses in Tanzania. I am happy to collaborate with researchers, policymakers, and development agencies in conducting research projects and implementing practical interventions within these areas.
