About

I provide laboratory and bacteriology consulting services. Currently my main client is the Fleming Fund. I used to live and work in a hospital in rural Tanzania providing clinical laboratory services particularly bacteriology and CD4-lymphocyte counting. I am involved in clinical research on the causes and treatment of febrile illness in African children.
