Google Scholar profile

Devotha is a PhD candidate at the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology working on a model for evolvement of smallholder dairy farmers in eastern Africa. Being a computer scientist, she has developed a great interest in data aggregation, analysis and modeling (statistical and computational). She has worked on various projects internal and external as a researcher focused on tools development, deployment and data management. Her technical skills lies on: use of machine learning models to extract knowledge from data, real world modeling and abstraction. She is also experienced in paperless data capture (tools development, data management and field data collection). Devotha is an AWARD fellow 2014 (African Women in Agricultural Research and Development), through which she has achieved a number of benefits e.g., professional networking opportunities, attending professional conferences, proposal writing and leadership trainings, facilitation, presentation and mentorship skills.
