My research group is under development and will be established both in the Edinburgh and Nairobi (Kenya) nodes of the Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health (CTLGH).
Research in my group will primarily focus on comparative genomics, functional genomics and metagenomcs with the following objectives:
- development of tools and solutions for use to improve tropical livestock productivity and resilience
- characterization and conservation of tropical livestock genetic diversity
Other activities in my group include the development of new opportunities to harness livestock in low and middle incomes countries (LMICs) as a driver for agricultural development and a major contributor to sustainable development.
