    I started as a physics teacher after my graduation from university but I always had in mind to become a scientist and if possible to combine that with teaching. Also, as I like biology it was always my goal as a scientist to apply physics to the study of biology. During my MSc and PhD research projects, both on plant physiology, I extented further my knowledge on plant sciences, namely plant physiology & biochemistry, plant anatomy and the experimental methods used in these disciplines. Over the last 6 years I have especialized on mathematical modelling of plant transport systems (membrane transport, phloem and xylem transport) for which I used Mathcad as my main tool for solving differential equations. Also, on the experimental level I have experience on isotope labelling, electrophysiology and the standard methods and equipment used in those fields.  less

    Sourcing and organizing quality information/data is what I love to do most. For me the beauty lies in not only sourcing the right information but also presenting in such a way as to give it meaning and help my client to change mere information into usable knowledge. I specialize in desktop research, data collection and analysis, while applying my writing skills to write outstanding, well researched reports. Preparing presentations or presentation notes for my clients has become one of the skills many rely on, especially when deadlines are looming. As web designer I focus on content rich sites using HTML or CMS design to build effective websites. As consultant my focus is on e-waste and hazardous waste management in Africa and I have been involved in research and report writing on several energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.  less
