A graduate of Kenyatta University, Gimode's research focueses on biotechnology. Gimode is a doctoral student at the University of Georgia’s Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics, and Genomics, where he is working to understand the genetic attributes of lines of peanut called Chromosome Segment Substitution Lines (CSSLs). His second research objective is to use genome spanning single nuclear polymorphism (SNP) markers to build statistical models for evaluating the performance of peanut lines.
