I have a M.Sc. (Hons) in Agricultural Entomology. My thesis evaluated the quality of commercially produced Trichogramma sp. in Pakistan. I am also a certified Prince2 Practitioner.

I have also completed many consultancies in Afghanistan for implementing IPM/ICM trainings on high value fruits and crops in different regions. As an experienced farmer field school facilitator, I have practical knowledge of creating a learning environment using language and visual methods.


After the sever floods in Pakistan during 2010, I have also participated the in the rapid assessment survey of the area and developed many emergency response projects.


I have worked with a wide range of stakeholders, including farmers, agricultural extension workers, local and national government officials, private sector representatives and donors. I have practical knowledge of providing training in different languages and have worked in many countries in the region.
