I am an experienced financial journalist, author and researcher. Over the course of my communications career I have been published in newspapers, online and magazines, and been broadcast on radio and television. I am an experienced communicator and believe strongly in public engagement. Prior to my PhD I spent nearly a decade as a financial journalist and technology expert for the Afrikaans newspapers in South Africa. I had to stay on top of new developments in the South African business world and my judgement had to be flawless – any mistakes would end up in print the following day. I am also comfortable speaking with, and interviewing, senior executives. Whilst at the newspapers, I was editor of the technology supplement. In this role I sourced copy, managed journalists and liaised with stakeholders in production and marketing. I also developed a network of contacts and sources in Southern Africa. My academic credentials are exceptional and attest to my skills in research, analysis and critical thinking. I recently obtained my PhD from the University of Cambridge, where I was a Commonwealth Scholar. I also received grants from the Cambridge Trusts and the Rockefeller organisation. I obtained both my Master’s and undergraduate degrees cum laude. I have the right to work in both the UK and South Africa and can speak both English and Afrikaans. I am a published author and have written extensively on international development
