About

In 2015 I started my PhD at Stellenbosch University's Centre for Research on Evaluation Science and Technology (CREST). I am also a part-time researcher at the DST-NRF Centre of Excellence in Scientometrics and STI Policy (SciSTIP) hosted by CREST. My current interests are in open access research in South Africa and examining the open access citation advantage postulate.
