Subject Head and Associate Professor in Plant Sciences

Treasurer of the South African Association of Botanists

Associate Editor for American Journal of Botany

Associate Editor for South African Journal of Botany

C2 NRF rated researcher

DHET FPP Cohort 1 member

 

Research interests:

From discovering lizard pollination on continental Africa, filming mice dispersing seeds of invasive plants, studying climate change on the top of the Northern Drakensberg, to recording bird calls in montane wetlands; my research spans multiple fields in the ecological sciences. With collaborations across South Africa, Europe and the United States of America, I strive to use natural history and experimental biology to uncover evolutionary trends in plant and animal traits that shape interactions between these groups. I am part of a high elevation weeds group with the Centre for Biological Control, a member of the first cohort of the DHET Future Professors Programme, a Y1-rated NRF researcher, on the editorial boards of South African Journal of Botany and American Journal of Botany, and teach plant taxonomy, vegetation ecology and advanced biostatistics to final year and Honours BSc students.
