With a background in Animal Breeding and Genetics, I joined FMG as a research assistant in the DNA Fingerprinting Platform in 2014. As a team we perform routine analysis on Eucalyptus and Pine species for industry partners in the South African forestry sector. I am mainly responsible for data analysis and reporting, while overseeing operations in the lab. As part of the greater FMG, I assist in managing the group's general inventory as well as maintenance of pipettes and some equipment. My interests lie in the application of molecular-based tools for tree improvement.
