Ms. Enninful is a PhD student of the crop physiology laboratory at the Department of Agronomy, Kansas State University. Her research work is on looking into different dimensions of water-deficit stress tolerance in Sorghum. Her major research objective involves in depth physiological and biochemical characterization of Nested Association Mapping founder lines with an overall goal of mapping genomic regions that can further enhance tolerance to water-deficit stress among sorghum lines.
After pursuing a Natural Resources Management program at the undergraduate Level at KNUST in Ghana, she realized the many environmental problems in the world that have arisen from improper management of the Natural Resources. Thus she undertook studies at the University of Greenwich-UK which led to the award of MSc. Natural Resources-Sustainable Environmental Management. Regina’s previous studies included investigations on climate change adaptation and generating an up-to-date information crucial for monitoring a GSBA (Globally Significant Biodiversity Area) in Ghana. She has also worked on determining optimal conditions to propagate Moringa oleifera which is critical for supporting livelihoods and addressing nutritional needs.
She is enthusiastic about improving the understanding of issues arising from the impacts of varying environmental conditions on plants as well as committed to addressing matters related to food insecurity. As a lecturer and a researcher, Regina looks forward to spearheading research and imparting knowledge and skills acquired over the years, thereby influencing and mentoring students in becoming functional in solving societal problems. She is diligent and dedicated in contributing to solving challenges in the agriculture, environmental sciences and in the management of natural resources.
