About Mr. Okezie Onyemaechi

Mr. Onyemaechi Okezie is currently an Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Microbiology, University of Calabar Cross River State. I hold a B.Sc. in Microbiology from Abia State University, Uturu and an M.Sc. degree in Environmental Microbiology from Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, Nigeria. Presently am carrying out my Ph.D. program from the same school. I have been teaching and mentoring students from different social and cultural backgrounds. I possess excellent administrative, verbal communication skills along with constructive and effective teaching methods that promote a stimulating learning environment. I am a member of Nigerian Society of Microbiology and have attended conferences organized by this body like the ‘’ 5th and 6th Annual Nigerian Society for Microbiology (NSM) South East Zonal Symposium’’. Currently my focus is on understanding and predicting the impact of various organic and inorganic pollutants in the environment and the production and application of microbial bio-surfactants as a bioremediation tool for environmental cleanups. I have also published in a number of local and foreign journals.
