In 2017 I obtained my BSC degree in Microbiology and enrolled for my honours degree in 2018, where my research project focused on understanding the role of mating types in the morphology and virulence of Phytopthora cinnamomi; specifically on isolates associated with Persea americana (Avocado) in South Africa.
I am currently enrolled for an MSc in Microbiology, where my research project focuses on the elucidation of early responses of P. cinnamomi during avocado infection. This project is carried out under the supervision of Prof Noelani van den Berg in the Avocado Research Programme.
