Education:

Lappeenranta University of Technology – Finland Ph.D. (Science) (2014)

Teaching:

  • Linear Algebra

  • Numerical analysis
  • Partial differential equation
  • Mathematical Statistics
  • Abstract algebra
  • Linear Programming
  • Functions of single and Several Variables

Research:

Mathematical Epidemiology: - modeling the dynamics and effects of diseases such as; HIV/AIDS, Malaria, TB,  Banana Wilt, Newcastle, Brucellosis, and Schistosomiasis. I also have great interests in modeling within-host disease dynamics. Furthermore, I have interest in the application of Optimal control approach to disease models. My research interest also extends to the applications of Bayesian Methodology to disease models.
