MR CHRIS TEMBO
My PhD research focuses on understanding the biological significance of the genetic variations in arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization in rice by studying the growth of cultivars contrasting in colonization in a range of soils to see if there are different properties of facilitation and parasitism depending on cultivar and soil. My previous work focused on variations in salt tolerance in common bean varieties and challenges to rice production in Malawi.
I hold a BSc in Forestry (2009) and an MSc in Agronomy (2015) from Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR), formerly a constituent college of the University of Malawi. I also hold a University Certificate in Education from Mzuzu University.
