Judith Georgette Makombu-Nguegium is specialist of Aquaculture. She obtained a PhD in Fisheries in 2015 at the University of Buea. She has particular interest on characterization and culture of African prawns with emphasis on fresh water prawn culture of the genus Macrobrachium. She has conducted several research works and she is author of five publications in peer-reviewed journals.
In 2015, she won two grants from the International Foundation for Science (IFS) and the Africa Biosciences Challenge Fund (ABCF) to study molecular characterization of freshwater prawn of the genus Macrobrachium in the coastal area of Cameroon. She is currently a visiting scientist at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), Nairobi, Kenya where she works on general molecular biology and bioinformatics.
