I completed my BSc Environmental Sciences undergraduate degree in 2016 at the University of Pretoria. Thereafter, I set out to a BSc (Honours) degree, in ecology, within the department of Plant and Soil Sciences at the University of Pretoria. My Honours research project explored the responses of bird communities to a slightly degraded land-use, i.e. communal rangelands in the Orpen region of the Kruger National Park.

I joined FABI in 2018 to start my MSc. For my MSc I will be looking at some of the Macroecological patterns of global fugal diversity, while trying to explain some of processes that maintain the extremely high diversity of the mycobiome.
