I obtained my BSc Microbiology degree at the University of Pretoria in 2020.

Currently, I'm doing my BScHons under the supervision of Prof Almuth Hammerbacher and co-supervision of  Dr Tanay Bose. The project I am working on is on Epidendrum ibaguense-an orchid with global distribution. In this project we are trying to investigate the fungal diversity associated with this orchid, particularly finding fungi that has a symbiotic relationship with the orchid.
