Mr. Jackson Saul Msalilwa

Currently I am Principal Technologist in the Department of Ecosystem and Conservation. My current areas of research interest include soil conservation and tree farming, soil sampling and analysis, environmental planning and management and beekeeping.

I have been participating in various projects:-I have actively participated in projects under ICRAF (International Centre for Research in Agro forestry(1997-2000) as Laboratory Technician with the objective of to establish new laboratory for soil and plants analysis which was under ICRAF-Tanzania Zone in Shinyanga region and now is under TAFORI, and assignment was succefully. In addition, I have been working as coordinator and facilitator to various beekeeping projects collaboratively with Morogoro Environmental Conservation Organization(MOECO) to: “Empowerment of women in modern beekeeping through training in Morogoro Region Tanzania”. Financed by Waterloo foundation from United Kingdom, and the project was involving five villages i.e. Kitete, Madudu and Mafuru Kilosa district: Lungo and Wami Dakawa in Mvomero district (2013-2014).and another project was “Improved rural livelihood through development of improved beekeeping technologies in morogoro Tanzania” funded by Swinsconduct Tanzania (2016-2018), and Promoting small scale forests through tree farming to Magubike, Ibindo and maguha villages in Morogoro Region Tanzania funded by Tanzania Forest Funds (2017-2018).

I teach undergraduate practical dealing with Soil science, soil classification and land evaluation, and to facilitate beekeeping training to farmers in rural areas.

Additionally I supervise postgraduate students during laboratory research works project.

I am a member of NUSESA (National User of Scientific Equipment in Southern Africa) and Women Environmental Conservation organization (WECO) as Patron
