About me

I have extensive experience in various fields, including public health, global health, embryology, Monitoring and evaluation, and human nutrition, and have achieved significant accomplishments in my career. I earned my BSc and MSc degrees from Jimma University in Ethiopia and have since developed research skills, publishing numerous papers in various scientific journals. I have held positions as a researcher, lecturer, and PhD fellow in human nutrition at Jimma University. In these roles, I conducted research in my field of expertise, advised and supported students, and provided expert consultation to industry, community, and healthcare providers.
I am interested in several areas, including public health, epidemiology, maternal and child health, global health, monitoring and evaluation, and nutrition. I have also served as a primary health care unit director, Marie Stopes International Ethiopia and as cluster manager in the WISH project. I am proficient in Afan Oromo, English, and Amharic, and I have demonstrated my proficiency in using various Microsoft Office™ tools, including MS Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Access. I am skilled in statistical software programs such as Epi Data, Epi Info, SPSS, Stata, R, and SAS.
