BSc (Chemical Engineering)



Having completed my undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering, I went on to work as an Investment Banker at Absa Group Ltd for two years. It was here that I gained extensive financial experience, specifically in the Global Markets and Sustainable Investments space. Now, I am currently pursuing an M.Sc. in Climate Change and Sustainable Development whilst working as a Sustainability Intern at the Energy Systems Research Group.

"My aim is to combine my specialized skillsets with my technical knowledge of both finance and engineering and enact this in my professional career. Specifically, I aim to use this combination to provide sustainable solutions to corporate institutions by including and evaluating the technical, social, political, financial and environmental aspects into the decision-making process."
