Work and Research

My research revolves around the efficacy and safety evaluation, phytochemical characterization of indigenous African flora for practical applications towards enhancing food and nutrition security for the growing population. The increasing challenges associated with the sustainable production of high quality medicinal, horticultural and ornamental plants geared me towards exploring the application of simple plant biotechnology approaches for enhancing productivity and conservation of different plants. I have conducted extensive research on the potentials of conventional plant growth regulators (cytokinins) as well as environmentally-friendly biostimulants such as seaweed extracts, smoke-water and vermicompost for improving productivity of high quality crops and enhancing nutritional content
