My Story

I completed my Bachelor's degree in Agriculture (Plant Pathology) and Master of Science in Plant Breeding, with a minor in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at Central Mindanao University and the University of the Philippines Los Banos, respectively. I then worked as a researcher in the salinity and problem soils tolerance breeding team at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) for five years before moving to the Philippines' Department of Agriculture as a senior science research specialist. I was accepted to pursue PhD at the University of Western Australia and joined the Batley Lab in October 2019. After completing my PhD, I was appointed as a Research Associate in Batley Lab, where my research focuses on plant genomics, particularly on resistance genes and QTL analysis of Brassica populations. Through my academic and professional experiences, I have cultivated a deep understanding of agricultural research and plant breeding, contributing to the advancement of knowledge in these fields.
