Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Stellenbosch
During this period, I have gained expertise in LC/MS based proteomics analysis, developed qPCR based gene expression assays and assessed alternative drug targets for M. tuberculosis under Sulfamethoxazole treatment.
Supervised B.Sc Honours students in a project involving validation of alternative drug targets of Sulfamethaxozole using qPCR.
I completed my PhD in the area of Molecular biology and Immunology. My work during PhD was focused on interdisciplinary field of Molecular biology and immunology of tuberculosis from University of Cape Town, South Africa. The work was aimed at understanding the implication of M. tuberculosis strain variation, in human host.
