Aquatic Ecology & Evolution


I am a PhD student in Ole Seehausen’s group working on cichlid fish fossils and ancient DNA from Lake Victoria’s sediment cores. My main interest is to reconstruct the history of the Lake Victoria ecosystem from its origins 15’000 years ago to present. I studied Zoology at the University of Limpopo, and then graduated an MSc degree in Biotechnology (plant genomics) from the University of Pretoria. I am currently based at at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (EAWAG).
