Summary

I am a PhD level molecular biologist with a strong plant breeding background and hands-on experience in plant genetics and molecular biology. A natural communicator, result-driven and committed team-player who thrives in international and multidisciplinary projects. I enjoy working both independently and within a team; I am a decisive and analytical troubleshooter with proven leadership ability.
