Currently I am Chief Technologist and in-charge of Departmental laboratory, Department of Ecosystem and Conservation.My current areas of research interest includesoil fertility management and land evaluation, soil sampling and analysis.Sustainable Management of Natural Resources I have participated in various projects:-I have actively participated in projects under Environmental Climate Change Compatible Agriculture. The project was under Public Private Partnership initiated by two public universities (SUA and University of Life Science, Norway) and two multinational companies dealing with fertilizer (YARA) and another with crop protection (SYNGETA) since 2010 to 2014. Additional I joined research team as Soil Scientist on ongoing project of Implementation support of results and data of first National Forest Resources Monitoring and Assessment (NAFORMA) at regional and local level Tanzania”. Moreover,I was actively involved in the project of Quantification and Mapping of Carbon Stocks and Plant Diversity in Different Land Cover Types in Tanzania- sub section of monitoring of soil carbon in different miombo cover types. The project was under CCIAM.

I teach undergraduate practical dealing with Soil science, soil classification and land evaluation. Additionally Isupervise postgraduate students during laboratory research works project.

I am a member of Soil Science Society of East Africa
