Biography

Dr. Susan G. Aquino was initially employed at the University Extension for almost 10 years and later transferred to the University Research Unit. With Agricultural Engineering as her undergraduate course, she conducted studies on soil and water researches and was a part of the European-funded IRMLA project on Land Use Analysis in East and Southeast Asia.

Her love for extension activities compelled her to take and finished her Master’s Degree and ultimately, her PhD in Rural Development in the same institution where she is currently employed. As a MASHAV scholar, she is armed with an International Post-Graduate course in Hydrometeorology (1999) and Integrated Urban-Rural Development (2007) both in Israel. Dr. Aquino goes with the saying:

We have the critical skills that this society needs right now … everywhere I look I see social workers; they’re the heart of some chain. They may not be the person standing outside making a speech, but they’re the person running the meeting. They’re making things happen. We are making things happen” (quoted)

She is presently conducting her researches on gender studies and rural development.
