Social skills and competencies

 

Living and working with other people, in multicultural environments, in positions where communication is important and situations where teamwork is essential (for example culture and sports), etc.

 

 

 

 

 

When I was under graduate and post graduate student, I was living with   students coming from more diversified national of Ethiopian in multicultural environment peacefully. I got sociable life experience from the Universities; I was participating in various clubs (anti-drug, animal welfare) and sport festival like competition among different departments within the college. Currently, I am working different tasks with my colleagues, like researches, community services, committee works and other activities.

                     

 

Organizational skills

and competencies

Coordination and administration of people, projects and budgets; at work, in voluntary work (for example culture and sports) and at home, etc.

 

 

 

In my organization, I am responsible in management tasks at college of Agriculture and Environmental Science and department representative, laboratory head, committee member, course organizer, local project organization, in project writing and course chairs system.

and competencies

With computers, specific kinds of equipment, machinery, etc.

 

 

 

RESEARCH    INTERESTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ON-GOING PROJECTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have basic computer knowledge like Microsoft offices (ms-word, excel and access), internet browsing, SPSS, SAS, POPGENE, PAST, NTSYS STATISTICA, Gene scan and molecular  analysis software

 

 

 

 

Due to my ongoing interest in biotechnology, I had MSc. Degree in biotechnology. I gained hands-on experiences on various techniques like DNA extraction, PCR , gel Electrophoresis and analysis of its product. Hence, the core line of my research interest is improvement of species in differentperspective through molecular breeding starting form molecular characterization, gene mapping and manipulation of its genetic makeup (genomic editing, molecular cloning, and genetic engineering). I am particularly interested in identification,characterization and modifying  of the complex trait and its associated genes using modern biotechnological tool such as molecular markers, CRISPR/Cas9 System..etc.
