I am a PhD student from the Institute for Grape and Wine Sciences (IGWS) at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. I completed a four-year undergraduate degree in Agronomy and Plant Pathology (BScAgric) and an MSc degree in Plant Pathology, both at Stellenbosch University. The focus of my PhD studies will be on functionally characterising cuticle-related grapevine genes. I look forward to exploring Italy and eating lots of Italian food!
