In addition to my academic pursuits, he is a mentor for early career researchers at Eider Africa and a Research Capacity Advisor on Scientific Writing and Communication at the Training Centre in Communication (TCC-Africa).

Nicholas is also the founder of WritingHub Africa, an organization that provides training and mentorship on scientific writing and publishing, data analysis and grant proposal writing. Additionally, he is a strong advocate for mental health in academia and the democratization of science through citizen science and open science practices.

Currently, he is the head of Moderation and Curation at AfricArXiv, and a reviewer for several scientific journals, including Frontiers in Aquatic Foods, the African Journal of Food, Agriculture, Nutrition and Development, and Lakes and Reservoirs Journal.

His current research is on ‘Multi-loop Aquaponic system for Water and Nutrient Efficiency in food production in peri-urban communities in Kenya’. Nicholas has also participated in several research projects on fisheries, aquaculture, and the blue economy in Kenya and East Africa, and am open to opportunities for collaboration and consulting.
