Attend bachelor degree program at Addis Ababa University from September, 1993 to July, 1997. Employed as a Physics teacher in different schools at Bale zone, Oromya region, Ethiopia. Attained graduate program Study again at Addis Ababa University Department of Physics with specialization on Statistical Physics.  Employed as a Physics instructor at Jimma University from September, 2004, to August 2017. Worked at Addis Ababa University Statistical and Computational laboratory as a collaborate researcher. Then from September 2013 to April 2016 attend PhD program at University of Kwazulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. From August, 2017 is staff at Physics department Wolkite University, Ethiopia.
