PhD Rhodes University (2016)
Candice completed her PhD at Rhodes University in 2015. Her thesis detailed the life history of southern Africa’s only known maritime spider-egg parasitoid, Echthrodesis lamorali, and included aspects of the wasp’s distribution, basic biology, morphology and physiology. Candice is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow at Rhodes University, using the Aquatic Ecophysiology Research Platform to investigate the physiological responses of insects used for biological control to different environmental stressors.
