Mr. Myint Zaw is currently doing Ph.D in Agriculture at the University of Adelaide, Australia. He is interested in agricultural microbiology with an emphasis on biological nitrogen fixation of Mesorhizobium ciceri in chickpea. Specifically, he is attempting to explore the diversity of chickpea rhizobia in Australia and Myanmar in terms of their nitrogen fixation efficiencies, genetic and physiological characteristics.
Mr. Myint Zaw obtained both bachelor and Master's degrees from Yezin Agricultural University (YAU), Myanmar. He worked as a teaching staff at YAU since 2007 and he did his Master's degree as a part-time student. In 2017, he won a scholarship offered by ACIAR John Allwright Fellowship to do his Ph.D project at the University of Adelaide, Australia.
