I am a current PhD second year student at the department biomolecular science and biotechnology at UNSW. My professional experience are encompassing: 15 years in clinical microbiology, 4 years in plant pathology and agronomy, 5 years in environmental sciences; I performed research experiments; earned laboratory skills in most aspects of the isolation and identification of microorganisms from human, plant, and environmental samples. I have potential for a position that utilizes technical skills and knowledge in microbiology, plant pathology, biological /clinical /environmental testing and analysis, new product research and development, quality control, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries. Most of all, I have seven years of teaching experience as a biology instructor at university and college.
