Research Portfolio

Welcome to my research portfolio page

My research journey has inspired a commitment to access. This includes access to knowledge and electricity. I am therefore a proponent of sharing knowledge to aid others in their journey of renewable energy research. I consider the electrification of Africa an imperative to global social progress and believe that this should therefore be a global effort.

Currently, I am writing research articles on spectral solar radiation characterisation and modelling, the atmospheric composition distributions over southern Africa, and data-scarcity in Africa. I have already submitted my PhD dissertation and expect to graduate end of 2021. I am also researching best engineering education practices and the nuanced knowledge-building process within postgraduate engineering. I am a proactive and resilient researcher, coder, analyst and teacher. I am well-read, a proficient writer, and thoroughly enjoy asking questions and pursuing the answers thereof.

My goal is to contribute to sustainability and the progress of society through my technical skills, creative approach to problem-solving and compassion for the Earth, animals and community.
