I have an extensive experience of more than twenty years in academics and research. My academic experience and interest focus on developing both hard and soft skills on subject related to English language skills development, ICT and study skills development, research skills etc.
Through national and international partnerships and collaboration, I have worked on and successfully completed a number of projects either as a Principal investigator, a co-investigator, Team Leader or team member. I participated in writing winning proposals for internally funded small-scale projects and externally funded large scale projects with organisations such as the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida), International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Foreign Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO), MasterCard Foundation (MCF) and others. I also participated in running related projects in collaboration with national and international partners.
As an established researcher I have been part of different multidisciplinary research teams that contributed knowledge in different areas spanning from applied social Sciences to Innovations through knowledge production processes and knowledge systems, research management and interface between social sciences, Humanities and Business. I have also extensively published academic papers, reports and blogs emanating from my involvement in multidisciplinary research undertakings.
