I am a Lecturer at Makerere University Business School Uganda and am currently pursuing a PhD in Business and Management at The University of Witwatersrand South Africa. I have spent the last eight years conducting research in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovation, education and sustainable development among marginalized groups (youth, women, persons with disabilities and former child soldiers) in resource constrained environments. My current PhD research is on entrepreneurship learning and economic sustainability of micro enterprises operated by women with disabilities in Uganda.
I am also one of the investigators in the 2016/2018 research project “Explaining the Nature and Prospects of Frugal Innovation in Uganda” funded by British Academy. I was also previously one of the lead investigators in the 2010/2011 “Entrepreneurship: Empowering Marginalized Groups” Research project funded by Trust Africa ICBE Research Grant. The research focus was on entrepreneurship training, funding and Government policy among marginalized groups (Women, rural youth and the disabled entrepreneurs) in Uganda. Also with a comparison of rural youth in Kenya. I also conducted research in Northern Uganda on the role of education in the reintegration of former child soldiers.
