I am a Visiting Professor of Biomathematics, Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Strathmore University, Kenya
And a former Professor of Biomathematics in the Department of Mathematics, Makerere University
I am also an Adjunct Professor in Applied Mathematics at Nelson
Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-
AIST), Arusha Tanzania
Former Vice Chancellor, Makerere University, Uganda (2004 – 2009).
I obtained BSc.(Maths) from University of East Africa at Makerere College (1970);
M.A.Sc (Operations Research) from the University of Toronto, Canada (1972);
PhD (Applied Math – Biomathematics) from the University of Adelaide, Australia (1980). Research Project was entitled: Mathematical models for a population of insects infesting stored cereal products
– Supervised by Dr. William Henderson (deceased).
My students and I have made significant contribution to the development of the field of Biomathematics in the region, with special emphasis on research in mathematical epidemiology, particularly infectious diseases such as Malaria, HIV/AIDS, Trypanosomiasis, Ebola, Rift Valley Fever. I was the first President of the African Society for Biomathematics (ASB); a member of the International Biometric Society; a member of the Uganda National Council for Science and Technology; and Chairperson of the Board of Governors for the Inter-University
Council for East Africa (July 2008 – June 2009). I am a Fellow and member of Council of
Uganda National Academy of Sciences, a member of the Advisory Board for East Africa
University Mathematics Programme – supported by International Science Programme (Uppsala, Sweden). While Vice Chancellor I initiated the Makerere University Private Sector Forum intended to bridge the gap between the University and the Private Sector.
