Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Cape Town

I have qualifications in Business related studies i.e a PhD in Management Sciences specialising in Business Administration, a Master's degree in Business Administration (MTech), a BTech:Management, an Advanced Diploma in Business Management (3 year Diploma). Prior to those I had a Diploma in Pedagogy (education) when I learned Sciences, French, Philosophy and Education-related subjects. I have over 14 years of experience as an educator (lecturer, teacher, tutor) and 3 years experience as a Recycling Operations' Co-supervisor. I also worked as a Business and Research Consultant. My PhD was about the BRICS mineral beneficiation policies in the context of South Africa. My Postdoc Research Fellowship focuses on the coltan and cobalt resource curse (project 1) and SADC's mineral beneficiation policy integration (Project 2). As a polyglot and a language practitioner, I speak many languages i.e English, French, Swahili and Esperanto (in addition to several African languages), and I was, in addition to my business studies expertise, trained to teach those languages...
