I am currently a Postdoctoral fellow at the DST-NRF Centre of Excellence in Scientometrics and Science Technology and Innovation Policy (SciSTIP) hosted by the Centre for Research on Evaluation Science and Technology (CREST) at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. In 2019 I completed a PhD in Science and Technology with the dissertation topic of "an investigation of open access citation advantage through multiple measures and across subject areas for articles published from 2005 to 2014." My current interests are in open access research in South Africa and examining the open access citation advantage postulate.
