I am currently a Master's student in the Department of Microbiology and Plant Pathology, under the supervision of Prof Fanus Venter and Prof Emma Steenkamp. The title of my project is "The classification of novel Bradyrhizobium species associated with indigenous southern African legumes."

My project is centered around expanding the bacterial taxonomy of indigenous bradyrhizobia using methods like DNA-DNA hybridizations and whole genome sequencing.
