Graduation Day. Always a very special and immensely proud moment.

Postgraduate supervision and training is a key component of my academic life. Over the past decade I have successfully developed an integrated research programme involving, graduate students, postdocs and international collaborators, many of whom are involved in research projects linked to bilateral agreements between South Africa, Sweden, Italy, Spain and the UK. This has provided a vibrant research atmosphere for my students who regularly interact with colleagues here and abroad. 

On finishing their degrees many of of students have obtaining prestigious PhD and postdoctoral scholarships and several former students are now senior academics at South African Universities.
