I am a Namibian citizen. From 2008-2011, I did my Undergraduate degree (BSc) and Honours (Zoology) at the University of Stellenbosch.
For my Honours year, I had the opportunity in being a part of the Marine Research group, where my project was on the ‘Prevalence and intensity of polydorid infestations on farmed oysters’. During this project I spent a lot of time extracting and identifying the different species of Polydora that invest oyster shells both in South Africa as well as in Namibia. After completing my honours, I worked for 10 months at the Gobabeb Research Station in the Namib Desert, Namibia. From 2013-2014 I attended the University of Pretoria, where I studied tremors in white rhinoceros during chemical immobilization.
Since May 2015, I have been working as the Park Warden/Environmental Manager at Kalahari Anib Park (Gondwana Collection) in Namibia.
