I am a senior hydrogeologist at GEOSS South Africa with a BSc Honours through Stellenbosch University and an MSc in Geohydrology from Free State University. I joined GEOSS as a full-time employee at the end of 2015 where I have worked since, predominantly on groundwater exploration and development projects for the agricultural, industrial and municipal sectors. Notable projects include borehole drilling, testing and production management for the towns of Calvinia, Brandvlei, Makana/Grahamstown, Paarl and Wellington in South Africa. My main work responsibilities revolve around the test pumping of boreholes for the purposes of aquifer parameter estimation and production recommendations. I have been involved in MAR projects and in 2019 attended the IAH MAR Training Workshop in South Africa, ISMAR 10 Symposium in Madrid, Spain, and more recently ISMAR 11 in California, USA. My international work experience includes Sierra Leone and Botswana, which consisted of on-site drilling supervision and management, as well as injection testing for MAR.

I have recently submitted my PhD and I'm currently looking for opportunities where I am able to apply the knowledge gained during my studies to more practical experiences. I am a passionate and outgoing person who loves the outdoors, while also being a loyal and hardworking individual. I obtained my post graduate degree in Engineering and Environmental Geology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) before joining WSP Environmental as a consultant specializing in groundwater and contaminated land investigations. I later returned to UKZN to further myself and undertook my MSc and subsequent PhD in conceptual and three-dimensional numerical groundwater modelling.
