I first joined FABI in 2013 where I was a mentee student part of the CTHB mentorship programme. Although my honours degree was in a different research group, my love and passion for plant-pathogen interactions drew me back to the FABI team, where I continued with my Master's degree in Genetics and formed part of the leading  Avocado research groups in the world - Avocado Research Porgramme. I am currently pursuing my PhD degree in Genetics where I am looking at plant-pathogen interactions between polygalacturonases from Phytophthora cinnamomi and polygalacturonase-inhibiting proteins from Persea americana
