I completed my BSc undergraduate degree in Human Physiology, Genetics and Psychology at the University of Pretoria 2016 and then continued to obtain a BSc Honours degree in Genetics in 2017. My honours project focused on identifying endopolygalacturonases in Armillaria species and investigating whether endopolygalacturonases copy number affected the virulence of a species.

I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Genetics and my project focuses on understanding the population diversity of an invasive Eucalyptus pest Gonipterus, and its biological control agent in South Africa.
