I have special interest in Microbiology, Water and wastewater treatment, Nitrification, Bioreactor process improvement, Biofilm and microbial surface interactions.
I do love to teach, but I love improving student experience which is central to my programme support role
Start early, go steady
I am very flexible in my approach. I love student interaction; lets cooperate to solve problems and improve performance all round!
