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.
