She is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the Development Corridors Partnership (DCP) project and is based at the Institute for Climate Change and Adaptation (ICCA), University of Nairobi. She holds a PhD in Environmental Information Systems from University of Eldoret, Kenya. Her doctoral research involved the assessment of the impacts of watershed dynamics on river flows. Her research interests focus on the impacts of land use changes, socio-economic dynamics and climate change on water resources. She aims to reveal the implications of various processes on the quality and quantity of both surface and ground water through hydrological modelling. Her ultimate goal is to come up with the best practices in water resources management that are inclusive, sustainable and resilient to economic development, climate change and other risks.
