Project 31: Evaluation of the Antioxidant Activity and Phytochemical Evaluation of Western Australian Honeys

A bit about myself:
I was born in Roxas City, a coastal city in central part of the Philippines and hold a Master of Science (Chemistry) from the University of Santo Tomas and a Bachelor of Secondary Education from West Visayas State University. I got interested in chemistry because of my love for different flavours, food and cooking. I have taught chemistry and various research related subjects at university level since 2012. My own research has focused on antidiabetic plants found in the Philippines, in particular on the development of in vitro bioassays for antidiabetic and antioxidant activity. I have a good background in natural product chemistry especially in compound isolation and structural elucidation.

My general interests include reading fantasy novels, cooking, hiking, watching the sunset and watching foreign films.
