Additional work tasks include compilation and reporting of test results and contact with clients and suppliers. Responsible for troubleshooting, maintenance and repair of instruments are included among other work tasks.
Previously, I worked as a soil and plant researcher, analytical chemist, laboratory manager and QA/QC. I enjoy my mission as an analytical chemist, QA/QC and as a researcher focusing on development and assessment of soil, plant, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. Besides, I have a strong scientific and technical background with bench experience in life science research, particularly in the field of analytical chemistry, protein chemistry and molecular biology.
