Dr. Marjina Akter
Mst Marjina Akter received Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from Chittagong Government Veterinary College (affiliated by University of Chittagong). She achieved degree of MS in Poultry Science from Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Science University and MSc. in Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health from the Royal Veterinary College, University of London, UK. Dr. Marjina also obtained PhD in Poultry Nutrition form University of New England (UNE), Australia in 2017.
She joined as a Lecturer in the Department of Dairy & Poultry Science (DDPS), CVASU in 2008 and continued this position until 2011. Currently, she holds a position of Assistant Professor in the same department since 2011till to date. Her research interest mainly focuses on poultry nutrition with specialization in enzyme (phytase) technology, feed and feed technology, mineral nutrition, nutrient metabolism, feed digestibility of poultry.
Dr. Marjina has a strong record of high quality research in her area that includes publication of a number of papers published in the reputed national and international journals.
