Biography:

Life is full of many surprises, because I didn’t see myself working in a quiet place under the breezy trees of Nafanua and facing the green mountain range of Upolu. I was unsure and uncertain whether this was the path I was destined for. After planting my feet and got myself focus to the working environment, I finally confront myself that this is the place to be. After spending five (5) years in Japan for my master and doctorate degrees in Animal and Food Hygiene, I decided to come home to use the experience and expertise for the benefit of Samoa. 

Being a scientist at the Scientific Research Organization of Samoa (SROS) is a privilege which enables me to work with other scientists of Samoa to contribute and stipulate the organizations objectives and functions.

Researches of interests involve the extractions and identifications of functional and bioactive compounds from:
- Medicinal (herbal) plants which posses’ properties to fight diseases. 
- Traditional fermented food of Samoa which could incorporate into functional food.

B.Sc (USP)., M.Sc, Ph.D (Japan).
