I completed my B.Sc. in Plant Production in the Horticulture department, faculty of Agriculture, University of Tripoli, Tripoli, Libya. I am currently pursuing my MSc. with Dr. Praveen Saxena at GRIPP focusing on the in vitro propagation and cryopreservation of Golden Paintbrush (Castilleja levisecta), a listed endangered species native to both Canada and the United States. I am excited for this opportunity to develop methods to save threatened and endangered flora and here at GRIPP.
