• I am Timothy Omara from Uganda.  Under the Africa Center of Excellence II in Phytochemicals, Textile and Renewable Energy (ACE II PTRE) Moi University (Kenya) scholarship, I have attained a Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry degree.   This fellowship has afforded me an opportunity to meet and collaborate with people from different parts of the world. With these connections, I have published over 35 research articles across 23 peer reviewed journals. The interactive academic atmosphere and the full-time support of the University and the Scholarship Center has made the degree cursus quite enjoyable. It is my sincere hope that this degree will enable me to have a positive impact on the East African community.
