My Links

I am a PhD student at the University of Pretoria, South Africa studying bacterial and plant-based expressions. My supervisors are Professor Karl Kunert and Dr Juan Vorster world-renowned for their work on proteases and protease inhibitor interactions as well as stress biology. I affiliated to the Molecular Plant Physiology Research Group (MPP) headed by Professor Karl Kunert and Dr Juan Vorster. I am also affiliated to the Forestry, Agricultural and Biotechnology Institute (FABI) headed by Professor Mike Wingfield.
