Favourite thing to do in my job: Talking to people during data collection. Helps you to appreciate life
I am a social scientist who loves interacting with the community through interviews and focus group discussion to understand their thoughts on certain topics that affect their life. specifically i condcut research aimed at strenthening the health system and aid in policy making.
I live with my family in Nairobi, I have two beautiful girls aged 2 and 8 years. My favourite dish is chapati on Saturday. I love playing hockey and I am a research mentor for university students. You can take a way my phone and internet as long as you take me to hiking and nature walk trails. I am fun and you gonna be my friend in few minutes, I enjoy listening to Tedx talks when bored at home.
I walk up in the morning: do some morning run and shower before heading to work. While in office read through relevant articles relating to my work to understand and expand my knowledge of the topic. Find out gaps from the reading and its implication in my work. Go to the field to talk to people about my research topic by asking them questions on what they think about the topic usually in form of a conversation. Come and put together all the information and start to read through to seek areas of collaboration and differences( Data analysis)
