MEd Rhodes University (2015)

Kim completed her Master’s in Environmental Education at Rhodes in 2015. With her background in Entomology from Stellenbosch (BScHons), she is eager to facilitate the process of demystifying the field of Entomology among our local communities by introducing them to the various uses of insects such as biological control. This is done through various awareness and educative programmes around Grahamstown and the Eastern Cape. Another aim is to try and foster a culture of community engagement within science disciplines

Research Interests:

  • Awareness of biological control
  • Early detection of alien invasive plants
  • Experiential learning in programmes
  • Value of engaged programmes
  • Education Resource Development
