Short autobiography 

  • BSc (majoring in Geology and Physics) – Univ. of the Western Cape, 2002-2004 
  • BSc Honours (majoring in Geology) – Univ. of the Western Cape, 2006 
  • MSc (Exploration Geochemistry) – Univ. of the Western Cape, 2010 
  • Part-time Lecturer – Univ. of the Western Cape, 2009-2011 
  • Acting Hive Manager – Univ. of the Western Cape, 2011-present 
  • PhD – Currently: Optimization of selective extraction techniques and vapour geochemistry for PGE exploration in the Rooipoort and Kalplats prospects, South Africa. 

Research interests 

Current research interests are in regolith geochemistry over PGE-BMS mineralization. This research investigates the controls of element dispersion in regolith overlying platinum-group element and base metal sulphide mineralization in the Kalplats, Rooipoort, Amalia and Griqua Town areas. The research involves the use of assorted partial and selective extraction techniques to optimize the surface geochemical signatures of concealed mineralization.
