I joined the KRISP team as a post-doctoral research fellow in 2018. I completed my PhD at the University of Cape Town in 2016. The focus of my PhD was cardiovascular genetics. I am now working on multiple human genomic assays in the KRISP lab.
Post-doctoral fellow: College of Health Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), Durban, South Africa.
