I joined CERI in 2021, as the Grants Manager. Prior to that, I was the Grants Manager for the Wellcome Trust funded Africa Centre for Health and Population Studies (now AHRI), based at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) (2003 – 2016) and then moved to KRISP at the UKZN (2017-2021). I was instrumental in establishing the grants departments at both the Africa Centre and at KRISP. My main focus is pre-award, working with a team of researchers to attract funding from the world-wide health funding institutions like the National Institutes of Health (USA), USAID, European Commission and the Medical Research Council of the United Kingdom. My experience includes South African funders, including the SA Medical Research Council, Human Science Research Council (HSRC), National Research Foundation and the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA). I am passionate about capacity building and have been involved in various grant writing and management workshops.
