I am driven by passion to make some contribution to reducing preventable maternal deaths and pregnancy related complications through nationwide policies such Linda mama (free maternity policy). I also desire to understand and shape how policy makers think and work.
Because a lot of my research work is based in the community and it involves working with very vulnerable people with mental illness, I am always motivated by the improvements I see in people’s health and well-being after taking part in some of our projects.
My biggest motivation is the hope that the work I do will make a difference in the community no matter how small it might seem. I also enjoy the intellectual stimulation that comes along with my work as well as the ability to use and come up with new inventions.
