• I am Dr. Mark P. Odero from Kenya. I recently attained a PhD in Analytical chemistry under the African Center of excellence II in Phytochemicals, textiles and renewable energy (ACE II-PTRE) scholarship. This scholarship, has given me the chance to have hands on skills in analytical chemistry while allowing me to interact with scholars from my field of study. As a result of collaborative research with other peers in ACE II-PTRE, we have collaboratively published 8 peer reviewed papers and presented in 1 paper in an international conference.
