Reader in Bioprocess Technology, University of Westminster
I am currently a Reader in Bioprocess Technology at the University of Westminster in UK.
I joined the Faculty of Science and Technology in 2009 as a Lecturer in Bioprocess Technology. My BSc degree was in Industrial Chemistry from Makerere University, Uganda, after which I worked as a Production Chemist at Kampala Pharmaceutical Industries (1996) Ltd. I then returned to Makerere University as an Assistant Lecturer in Industrial Chemistry. In 2003 I completed my MSc (Batch Process Engineering from Loughborough University, UK.)
For my PhD I investigated the fermentative production of hydrogen from carbohydrate-rich substrates which I completed in 2007 from the Sustainable Environment Research Centre, University of Glamorgan, UK (now University of South Wales). I stayed at Glamorgan for postdoctoral studies investigating the enhancement of hydrogen production from fermentation end products using microbial electrolysis cells. I also have a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education obtained from the University of Westminster in 2012.
