Eunice is a molecular biology and biotechnology specialist with close to 15 years of experience in biomedical research gained at international research institutions. She has worked at ILRI Nairobi, training ABCF fellows at the Capacity Building team in the BecA-ILRI Hub and transitioning to the Animal and Human Health Program at ILRI. Previously, she was at the Medical Research Council (MRC-UK) Unit The Gambia at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, where she worked on multisite pneumonia aetiology projects that informed Haemophilus influenzae type B (type B) and pneumococcal vaccine use and efficacy. Her PhD research focused on immunogenetic variations among local and exotic Kenyan pig hosts and their responses when challenged with varying doses of the African swine fever virus (ASFV). She has (co)authored >50 peer-reviewed publications and several papers presented at international scientific conferences. She actively uses genomics to characterise microbes for epidemiological purposes while participating in African swine fever (ASF) vaccine development projects.

Eunice focuses mainly in Molecular Biology, Biotechnology and Genomics subjects with the aim of underpinning host-pathogen interaction mechanisms for i)epidemiological surveillance and preparedness and ii) for improved productivity and adaptability.
