Lanzhou: Asfa Batool, a Pakistani post-doctoral student at Lanzhou University in China, is persistently conducting her research on dryland farming with the hope of applying her knowledge and technology to enhance grain production in Pakistan.
She has spent nearly 11 years at the university since her arrival for her first master’s degree in 2012 and later completed her doctorate in Environmental Sciences in 2018. After finishing her PhD, she embarked on post-doctoral research.
While acknowledging her educational journey in China, she expressed gratitude to her mentor, Professor Xiong Youcai, a professor at the College of Ecology at Lanzhou University. He once delivered a lecture to undergraduate students at the Agricultural University Faisalabad in Pakistan, introducing them to Chinese dryland farming and water-saving technologies.
Inspired by Chinese agricultural technology, she anticipates learning from it and implementing changes in the existing agricultural practices in Pakistan. She pursued her education at Lanzhou University under a Chinese government scholarship and initiated her graduate studies in 2012 under Professor Xiong’s supervision. Engaged in research aimed at improving plant development and productivity through agricultural and biotechnology, she remains dedicated to her work.
