Currently as a post-doctoral research fellow at Human and Social Capabilities unit I am part of the team conducting national surveys on the impact of COVID-19 among South Africans. I have previously worked on national and provincial surveys covering a broad spectrum of public health issues. As a Senior Scientist at the South African Medical Research Council, I contributed to the conceptualization, tool development, data collection and data analysis processes on given research projects. My duties also included stakeholder management across various sectors in government. This experience was expanded at the HSRC. I have experience in both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies and have published peer reviewed journal articles. I have contributed to writing grants for research funding both at SAMRC and HSRC over the years. I have also mentored junior colleagues with their MA/MSc studies.
