Hoping doctoral degree will inspire others
Hilkka Ndjaula is the first person to have completed a doctoral degree through the long-standing academic collaboration on fisheries between UiB and Namibia. She hopes her degree will inspire her fellow countrymen and women to pursue research careers.
UiB has collaborated with Namibia since 1983. Along with the Institute of Marine Research, UiB has educated and guided students in fisheries biology and fisheries management.
Hilkka Ndjaula is the first person to have completed a doctoral degree through the collaboration. She is also one of the first Namibian women to take a doctoral degree in fisheries research.
’There are very few people in Namibia who have doctoral degrees in fishery subjects. Most students take Master’s degrees and end up working in fisheries management. I hope my degree will inspire other Namibians to take doctoral degrees and continue their research,’ says Hilkka Ndjaula.
