Zachary Senwo (Ph.D.), is Professor of Soil Microbial Biochemistry, Environmental Science & Toxicology, Fulbright Scholar, Food Systems Leadership & US Department of Defense Fellow in the College of Agriculture, Life and Natural Sciences at Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical University, USA. He received his Ph.D. in Soil Microbial Biochemistry and Chemistry from Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa working in soil enzymology and nutrient chemistry, focusing on the biochemistry and chemistry of nitrogen cycles in agricultural and metals-enriched soils. He also received a Certificate in Global Health with emphasis in Fundamentals of Global Health, Infectious Disease of Global Health Significance, Environmental Health in Low-Resource Settings, Refugee and Immigrant Health, and International NGO Management from University of Alabama, Birmingham - Sparkman Center for Global Health. His research and teaching activities emphasize soil microbial biochemistry, microbiology, chemistry, environmental science & toxicology of:  enzymatic and microbial processes in soils, environmental and agriculture systems;  novel methods for soil enzyme catalysis and their effects on soil functions;  soil microbial communities, functions and relations to mineralization of organic constituents,  metal/non-metal inhibition of enzymes;  chemical partitioning and bioreduction of soil metals; and  bioenergy and agrowastes/biomass valorization technologies. He has authored/co-authored over 150 research articles, book chapters, and a book review; held such administrative positions as Chair/Director - Department of Biological & Environmental Sciences; Research Director/Associate Dean of Research - College of Agriculture, Life, and Natural Sciences; and Executive Director - Office of Sponsored of the University. He successfully developed and launched study abroad research and academic programs with institutions in Brazil [Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation - EMBRAPA, Agronomic Institute of Campinas, Federal University of Roraima]; Costa Rica [EARTH University, The Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center - CATIE, VERITAS University]; China [Nanjing Forestry University]; Honduras [Universidad Nacional de Agricultura]; and Kenya [The University of Nairobi]. He has provided technical assistance to various entities nationally and Internationally - Caribbean [British-Montserrat]; South Africa [Tshwane University, University of Kwazulu-Natal]; Oman [Sultan Qaboos University]; Malawi [Fertilizer use efficiency for improving crop production among limited resource agriculture producers]; Gabon [Creating good business models in agriculture and ecotourism, preserving the ecological heritage, value addition to natural products]; and Senegal [Arsenic, pesticides residues, and aflatoxins levels in rice] in agricultural and environmental research, training, assessments, and evaluations. In 2019, he was a Fulbright Scholar to Kenya on tropical agroecology and sustainability. He is a Fellow of the Food Systems Leadership Institute (FSLI), and HBCU/MI Department of Defense (DOD) - 2020 - Summer Institute.
