Kawtar is a PhD student at heart and by profession. she received her master's in improvement and valorization of plant resources at Ibn Tofail University. She spent one year at the National Institute of Agronomic Research, working on Genetic Diversity and Molecular Characterization of Durum Wheat collection using SSR Markers. The thing that allowed her to join Mohammed 5 university as a PhD student in one of the best laboratories at the faculty of sciences, Rabat, Morocco. she is very grateful to be a PhD student. Because this is her passion. while she's not reading for her thesis, she enjoys spending time with her cats.
