I form part of a research group that is a hybrid between IMBM and SANBI. Our group is looking at the biochemical, transcriptomic and microbial endosymbiotic factors in rooibos.
I completed my BSc in molecular biology and biotechnology, BSc (hons) in Plant Biotechnology and MSc in Plant Biotechnology at the University of Stellenbosch. In 2015 I was part of the DST-NRF internship program at IMBM where I worked on a project that involved studying the metavirome of human skin. I am social, curious and adventurous. I can say with confidence that having a good sense of humor has definitely brought me this far.
