At Sulvaris, we take immense pride in recognizing and celebrating achievements of our outstanding employees. Today, we are thrilled to extend a hearty congratulations to Dr. Prem Pokharel on his recent PhD convocation from the University of Alberta.
Prem has not only demonstrated exceptional talent, but also a remarkable work ethic throughout his academic pursuits and in his time at Sulvaris. His dissertation focussed on soil science and brought him several awards along the way, most recently receiving the best graduate thesis award from the Faculty of Agriculture, Life & Environmental Sciences. Prem continues to make valued contributions to the Sulvaris team with his in-depth knowledge of agriculture, soils and scientific expertise. Beyond his academic achievements, Prem has been an exemplary team player, always going above and beyond to support his colleagues, sharing insights, and fostering a collaborative environment.
When asked why he was interested in working on novel fertilizers in agriculture, his response was:
“There is a huge opportunity in recycling waste into novel fertilizers that can provide global solutions for climate change and food insecurity. My interest is in improving farmers’ agricultural practices and protecting our environment through development and use of highly efficient novel fertilizers.”
