I was born in Cape Town, South Africa. I completed my BS (undergrad and Hons.) in Biodiversity and Conservation Biology, with a major in Marine Biology, and completed my Masters degree in Oceanography. I believe that my love for the ocean and everything related to it, was sparked during the years I spent volunteering at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town. Marine science is exciting and I love working with a particular problem that eventually yields results.
My PhD research is to examine the potential influences of future natural and human-caused pressures on Coastal wetland-estuarine systems and biogeochemical exchange on ecology, under various environmental and human population change scenarios.
