I am a PhD student pursuing PhD in Agricultural and Applied Biosciences (Taught PhD) in the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment since 2018 to date. I have successfully completed the Coursework and has embarked on the research components. I completed my MSc. in Environment and Natural Resources from Makerere University in 2016 having earlier obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Botany and Zoology from Makerere University in 2004. My MSc. studies were partly funded by Horizont 3000, an Austrian Organization based in Kansanga, Kampala, and Gulu University funded the research component. The MSc. research was on “Utilization of Medicinal Plants in Ikumbya Sub-County, Luuka District, Uganda”. This research has enabled me develop in-depth knowledge in ethnobotanicaland taxonomic studies and has furthered my interest in the field of botany, ethnobotany, ecology, climate change and environmental studies. Currently, I am carrying out planttaxonomy and to lesser extent animal taxonomy for many researchers engaged in plants and animal studies.
