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). I am a Senior Lecturer (since 2006) teaching courses in Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology and my research is predominantly on Angiosperm Systematics.
