I was part of industry where I practiced people, culture and organisational development management within the private sector. I have worked at policy level for human capital development serving on the board of the Human Resource Managers Association of Uganda as well as providing policy advisory and consultations to the Ministry of Public Service and other advocacy bodies on employment law related issues . I have provided advisory and consultancy and engagement services to public and private organisations, policy advisory bodies, and private sector accelerator organisations on data driven organisational development, human capital management and policy advancement.

Research interests

My main research interest is how private sector firms can experience sustainable growth and how employees can become a valued and critical enabling stakeholder on that journey. My research target is in exploring how to get developing economies to inclusively and actively participate in the journey of global prosperity. I am interested in exploring global concept of job quality, understanding how it can be understood and applied across socioeconomic contextual variances to advance sustainable development and attainment of the SDG Agenda 2030. My focus is to advance contextualisation of research around global concepts of work and employment from the perspective of developing economies. My current research is focused on using mixed methods to explore the dimensions of job quality in low-income, developing economies and how private sector can opt in to providing access to high-quality jobs.
