I am a doctoral researcher on a project of a design and implementation of a digital health intervention to improve childhood immunization program in Rwanda. The project is led by Prof. J. Frederik Frøen. It is funded by the University of Rwanda through its Regional Centre of Excellence in Biomedical Engineering and eHealth (CEBE) through a loan from the African Development Bank.

My fields of interest include Public Health, Health Informatics, and Maternal child health. I obtained my Master’s degree in health informatics from University of Rwanda, 2016 and Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, from Kigali Institute of Science and Technology, 2012. I am currently employed as an Assistant Lecturer in the University of Rwanda.
