Mr. MELKAMU MEKONEN | climate change | Best Researcher Award

I’m Melkamu Kassaye Mekonen; I graduated with my BSc in Forest and Nature Conservation at Mekelle University in Ethiopia, and the University of Gondar in Ethiopia awarded me a MSc degree in Forest Management and Utilization. Currently, I serve as a researcher and instructor in the department of forestry and climate science at Injibara University, Ethiopia. I bring with me four years of research and five years of education, research, and community-based project experiences in the forestry, environment, and agricultural fields. My aspiration is to pursue a PhD in Forestry, focusing on natural forest optimization and ecological interaction and management of bamboo forest resources, either in China or Ethiopia, in collaboration with supervisors.
