About Ahmed Idris Hassen


Ahmed Idris Hassen - Professional Summary:     My first undergraduate field of study was a BSc degree in pure Biology which I got from the then Asmara University of Ethiopia, now Eritrea. I then served as a high school Biology teacher in rural Ethiopia until I joined the Science Faculty of Addis Ababa University where I studied a Masters degree in Applied Microbiology with a thesis on Food Microbiology. Then for three years I served as a lecturer in Microbiology at the Alemaya University of Agriculture  in Ethiopia (now Harumaya University ). There, I  lectured such courses as Introductory Biology, General Microbiology and Cell Physiology for undergraduate students. In 2003, I got the opportunity to pursue my PhD study in Microbiology and Plant Pathology at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. After completion, I was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship by the same university to do research on development of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) as biocontrol and biofertilizers in selected crops in South Africa. After the postdoctoral fellowship and till the present, I have been working as a research scientist at the Agricultural Research Council, Plant Protection Research Institute in South Africa, 38 km North East of Pretoria.
