I am an information and knowledge management practitioner with over 20 years' research support experience spanning the natural sciences (agriculture and the environment) and the humanities and social sciences. Currently I am engaged as a Communications Consultant at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Nairobi, Kenya while undertaking background research for a doctoral opportunity with special interests in semantic web applications in cultural heritage institutions (LAMS) and in digital humanities scholarship. Previously I worked at the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), the field office of the Library of Congress in Nairobi, and the French Institute for Research in Africa (IFRA-Nairobi). I have teaching experience as a part-time Assistant Lecturer at the Technical University of Kenya (TUK) and Computer Instructor at INtel College of Microcomputers and Business Information Systems. I have also been involved in national information management initiatives as a member of the information management and innovations committee (IMIC) of our national library consortium (KLISC). Recently I was awarded the 2020 ASIS&T InfoShare award to join the ASIS&T Special Interest Group on International Information Issues (SIG-III).
