About Me

I am an evolutionary and computational geneticist from Botswana. My curiosity for nature began at a young age while exploring the wildernesses of the Kalahari desert and the Okavango Delta with my dad. This led me to pursue a BSc in genetics at the University of Cape Town that is located in the Cape Floristic Region, a beautiful biodiversity hotspot. And later a MSc in bioinformatics at the University of Pretoria during the omics revolution. I spent a lot of time during my MSc thinking about evolutionary concepts and ecological speciation, which led to a PhD on the adaptive genetics of cichlid fishes from the East African Great Lakes. I am currently a postdoc at the University of Bern and EAWAG working on cichlid population and speciation genomics. My interests span various aspects of adaptive evolution and the underlying genetic mechanisms, particularly at short timescales.
