Biography

The South East Asia Regional Center for Graduate Study in Agriculture (SEARCA) scholarship paved way to the development of his professional career when he completed his Masteral Degree in Forestry in 2010 at the University of the Philippines Los Baños and graduated with academic excellence, another achievement he reaped in his career life after graduating in college as Cum laude. During his MS studies, he studied the potential of Jatropha curcas L. as a source of biodiesel. Prof. Batin specializes in silviculture and forest influences, agroforestry, social forestry and forest ecology. Presently, he teaches various forestry subjects at the Department of Forestry, College of Agriculture, Food and Sustainable Development.

With his passion in teaching, he was tapped by Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry and International School of Thai Nguyen University as Visiting Lecturer for the past few years. Aside from teaching, Prof. Batin is also passionate in conducting various researches related to forestry and environment. His completed researches has been presented in various scientific conferences in the country and in other Asian countries such as Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand. He was also given an opportunity to work with competent senior researchers not only in the country but also in some Asian countries.  Recently, he just completed his research training course on forest ecology at the Forest Ecology Laboratory, National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, Taiwan last March 2017 sponsored by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). In July 2010, he was chosen to undertake a research training at the National Center of Genetic Engineering and Biochemistry (BIOTEC) at Pathumtani, Thailand which further enhanced his expertise in research undertakings. Some of his scientific works had been accepted in refereed and non-refereed journals which brought honor and prestige to the university. For. Batin also served as manuscript reviewer in international journals such as the International Journal on Arid Land Research and Management (ALRM) and the International Journal on Renewable Energy Research (JRER).

As bamboo enthusiast, he was often invited by government and private institutions as resource speaker on bamboo production, nursery management, field planting and management and harvesting. He leads several bamboo projects funded by the university and other research granting institutions which earned numerous recognitions and awards in the local, regional and national level. Through his bamboo initiatives, he was awarded in 2015 as the “Most Outstanding Extension Worker”.

As forester by profession, there are many things that I want to accomplish not for myself but for humankind. I want to inculcate in their minds that living with nature comes with responsibility and commitment, and it always start from us.
