Continuous learning and contribution to the body of knowledge have been an integral part of my life. After careful consideration and thought, I realized it was the right time to take my career to the next level by pursuing a DBA. This is to broaden my knowledge to innovate, solve more complex problems and lead change in practical ways in the business world.

My main aim is to transform the African food systems by creating business models that will help solve food waste and loss, thereby creating a sustainable and efficient food system.
