Work experience
My project experience as a principal investigator and researcher covers different fields of biology. Botany was my major field and I also minored Zoology. My research fields include malacolog (snails) and porasitology, aquaculture, environmental toxicology and monitoring, bioremediation especially phytoremediation. I have worked both in laboratory and in the field for the field trial study and assessment of soil and water pollution.
