I am currently completing my MSc. degree in microbiology under the supervision of Dr. Lucy Moleleki and Prof. Jaqcue Theron.

My project focuses on the creation of a Quorum sensing mutant in Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. brasiliense and determining the phenotypic traits associated with the global regulator within this bacterium.
