I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Population and Health where I teach and supervise project works and theses at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels with diverse teaching and learning skills that are student-centres, and based on the 21st Century Skills. My teaching and research interests cover areas in indigenous knowledge in population, environment and development; sexual and reproductive health and rights; HIV and AIDS studies, multi-stakeholder processes (MSPs).
