MSc Microbiology, Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg – Current
BSc Life Sciences (Microbiology and Biochemistry), University of South Africa

I am Master student from Zimbabwe. My thesis focuses mainly on investigating biotin cross feeding by prototrophic prokaryotes with an auxotrophic dinoflagellate. I enjoy using culture-based techniques to show the importance of different microbial interactions in B-vitamin cycling among marine microbes. I am very passionate about microbiology research and science in general. My goal is to one day make science accessible to young women from disadvantaged backgrounds.
