I am an academic and core biotechnologist with excellent diagnostics, teaching, management and research skills. With this I am keen to pursue a career in biomedical science and laboratory management. I am a recent management graduate with a biotechnology and bioinformatics background who combined studies with working and other commitments. In achieving this, I have shown myself to be self-motivated, punctual, committed and determined in achieving my goals, come what may. I have also demonstrated negotiating and organizing skills, a firm sense of leadership, responsibility, capability to work independently with little supervision and my capacity to work hard under pressure. I possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and am able to relate to a wide range of people, as proven by my varied work experiences in health care, diagnostics, research laboratories and academic institutes.
