I graduated with a PhD in Agricultural Sciences and Biological engineering from Catholic University of Louvain /Belgium. My PhD thesis was about the use of conservation agriculture and biological control by conservation to sustainably manage plant pests. This paradoxical approach can confer a high significant retrieval of ecosystem services destroyed by the misuse of synthetic pesticides. I am additionally competitive in biometrics, disaster preparedness and mitigation. I am currently Lecturer and Head of Department at Ruhengeri Institute of Applied Sciences.
