EITS Track: Environmental Toxicology

Education: B.S., Food Science and Technology, Makerere University Kampala

Research Interests:
I am interested in understanding the science of food toxins especially mycotoxins and how they affect food safety. Our laboratory uses mathematical and statistical analysis tools such as benchwork dose modeling and social network analysis to assess risk and apply this to food safety regulation, trade and health management.

My dissertation will focus on the impact of aflatoxin B1 exposure on severity of Plasmodium falciparum malaria among children in Uganda.
