Genomics Africa Fellow - After completing my undergrad in Computer Science and Applied Statistics at UCT in 2021, I found myself drawn to the incredible field of bioinformatics. Through CERI I've learned how to use my skills to benefit the efforts around reporting on genomic surveillance and the analysis of genomic sequences. In 2022 I will be studying my honours in data science at Stellenbosch and I look forward to using this experience to help curb the pandemic or at least control it.
