Biography

ADANMA AUGUSTINA UKAOMA (PhD) was born to the respectable Christian family of Chukwu’s family of Odenkume Obowo. She had her primary and secondary education before proceeding to University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) for degree program in 1986 which she rounded off in 1989 with a resounding Bachelor of Science B.Sc. (Hons) in Biology.As that was the beginning of her educational exploit, In 2001, she enrolled for a Master of Science in plant Science / Botany program at the Abia State University. Which she completed in 2005.

Her extraordinary Master of Science result earned her another automatic admission to pursue a PhD. program in the Biotechnology at the same Abia State University Uturu in 2006. She exhibited the same awesome brilliance to earn her PhD. degree in 2013.

As this is not her educational limit, again in 2007, she enrolled for another Doctor of Philosophy (PhD.) program in genetics and Plant Breeding at the Micheal OKpara University of Agriculture, Umudike.

She was on the employment of the Abia State University Uturu for Seven years (1991 – 2008) She is at present a senior Lecturer with Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO).

She has so many publications to her credit. She belongs to so many professional bodies. Her quintessential versatility in academia is not in doubt.
