Hafiz Umar Farooq
Hello, I am Hafiz Umar Farooq from Pakistan. I am a student of Erasmus Mundus Master Program in Plant Breeding and currently, I am doing my master’s thesis at SLU, Alnarp campus under the supervision of Dr. Therese Bengtsson. I am an ambition-driven person and for me, life without ambitions is meaningless. I have well-defined career goals and objectives and the accomplishment of these goals is the aim of my life. My ultimate professional ambition is to research in plant breeding and to develop high-yielding, multiple stress-tolerant, and disease-resistant varieties through farmer-oriented research and extension. I have a professional dream to be a global leader in this field and principal investigator to handle high-quality research in my country where Agriculture is considered the backbone of the country’s economy.
