In pursuit of a PhD in Renewable Energy Technology, Veronica Ngunzi is presently enrolled at Kenyatta University in that country. A PVT heat pump co-generation system for industrial energy supply is the subject of her present study. Her interests and enthusiasm are in energy management and optimization. She is committed to addressing industrial energy problems. She put in a lot of effort into her education in order to accomplish this, earning two Bachelor's Degrees from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) in Agricultural Engineering and Bio-Mechanical and Processing Engineering, both with Second Class Honors, Upper Division. Her educational background includes a Master of Science in Energy Management from the University of Nairobi and a Postgraduate Diploma in Project Management from the Kenya Institute of Management. Additionally, she has received training in short courses for both wind and solar energy both locally and abroad (International Training Workshop on Solar and Wind Energy Application from Gansu Natural Energy Research Institute (GNERI) in China and Solar Photovoltaic T3 Grid Tie and Hybrid Training from Strathmore University, Kenya).

She has also worked on energy consulting projects, where she was a member of a team that carried out a GIN-sponsored project on sustainable energy for agriculture and created a UNDP-funded low-carbon project's solar water heating training manual for Kenyan industry. She has also published the following through her involvement in research and writing: The Analysis of Energy Cost Savings by Substituting Heavy Fuel Oil with Alternative Fuel for a Pozzolana Dryer Case Study of Bamburi Cement was published in the American Journal of Energy Engineering in 2015, Vol. 3, No. 6, pp. 93-102. 10.11648/j.ajee.20150306.13 is the doi. Simulation Model for Predicting Drying in the Automated Grain Dryer, Ngunzi V.K. et al. (2014) IJESR/March 2014/Vol-4/Issue-3/193-201 p-ISSN 2320-9763; International Journal of Engineering and Science Research. She has spoken at conferences. In the Sustainable Research & Innovation (SRI) Conference 2022, she presented research on stochastic modeling of biomass fuel mix cost for boilers in the processing of tea.

She has self-taught MATLAB, PVSyst, Design Expert Minitab, and SPSS, and she is also active in the design and simulation fields.She will spend six months at Western University as part of the Global Affairs Canada Scholarship Program honing her research abilities so that she can finish her PhD study under the guidance of Dr. Joshua M. Pearce.
