BSc in Science with Major in Biotechnology; MSc in Science with Major in Mycology

I have worked for CABI since 2011. During this time, I have conducted multiple scientific research and development projects, including implementing and managing a GEF-funded project on Invasive Alien Species. As part of my role I assist in projects involving plant health and biosecurity initiatives, where I focus on quarantine, surveillance and pest lists, diagnostics and providing assistance to meetings. I am also involved in biopesticide production and research on beneficial microbes against oil palm Ganoderma disease.
