SUMMARY

Prof. James Ombiro Ondiek, Ph.D. is a Kenyan male born on 10th October, 1963 in Kisii. I went to Masikonde Primary School between 1970 and 1977where I scored 32 points in CPE and proceeded to Narok High School in 1978-1981, qualifying in the KCSE. In the period 1982-1983, I attended Olkejuado High School for the KACE. I joined Egerton Agricultural College in 1984 for a Diploma in Animal Husbandry and graduated with a Distinction in December 1987. I was first posted to AHITI Kabete as Lecturer (III). After a two-year (1987-1989) teaching stint, I rejoined Egerton University as a Senior Technician in Animal Science Department and studied for BSc. Animal Production in 1989-1992. I then proceeded to Makerere University (1994-1998) for MSc. in Animal Science. Upon my return to Egerton University, I was promoted through the positions of Teaching Assistant, Assistant Lecturer, Lecturer and Senior Lecturer. I have taught several courses in Animal Science discipline and supervised students at undergraduate and postgraduate level in my thirty two (32) years teaching career (1989-2021). I did my Ph.D. studies at Egerton University, on “Evaluation of tree and shrub forages as feed supplements to livestock in Kenya” and graduated on 21st December 2012. I have 52 Peer reviewed publications in refereed journals and presented 30 papers in scientific conference proceedings. I have written extension materials including one book, 9 booklets and 3 Pamphlets. My interest is to further my research in animal nutrition utilizing locally available feed resources and assess livestock production systems in the realm of climate change. I have participated in various community development activities as well as projects and consultancies. I am married with three children and listen, speak and write fluently in both English and Kiswahili.
