SAFER LAB MEMBER

Bio

My interest in biology began when I was young, growing up on a farm I was surrounded by wildlife. Fishing has always been an interest of mine and studying fisheries science gave me a way to learn from and be surrounded by like minded people. I am currently pursuing my masters on the thermal physiology of Argyrosomus species off the Namibian coast. I am a keen outdoorsman who hunts, fishes and enjoys a round of golf.
