I am a lecturer at Kenyatta University in Nairobi Kenya. I Teach and do research in coordination and organometallic Chemistry. In chemistry I hope to find a good cure for TB and other bacterial and possibly viral infections. I also look forward to efficient industrial catalysts for hydrogenation and C-C bond formation and other useful chemical transformations.

I would like to participate in this all important year of Chemistry as a way of raising awareness of the usefulness of properly handled chemistry and the dangers of mishandling the chemistry to the environment and human life.
