Student area of expertise gender based violence, University of the Witwatersrand

I am currently studying for Masters in Psychology (Dissertation) at WITS University. In my research, I am focusing on the perceptions and experiences of young people in Soweto Johannesburg, South Africa. I am also part of the Fathers Connection Team (Conduct research on father absence in South Africa) and Women Intellectuals Transforming Scholarship in Education Team (Conduct research on Sexual Reproduction and Health Rights) under supervision of Professor Mzikazi Nduna. I have worked at Perinatal HIV Research Unit (PHRU) in Soweto for 5 years (2009-2015 February). I worked as a Research Assistance and conducted research with young people for different studies.
