Community Work

I am a firm believer in community participation. I have realized that, in order to contribute more effectively to the academic community, I must be well informed. I therefore welcome the opportunities to contribute in a wide array of academic duties such as seminar presentations, research collaborations and manuscript reviews because it is through those assignments that I can learn more about the current issues in my teaching disciplines, research areas as well as issues affecting higher education. Find below some of the areas I have been contributing to the academic and industrial communities:
