As a researcher, lecturer, writer and practising artist, I work at the intersection of a range of creative disciplines.

I am an associate professor in Visual Studies at Stellenbosch University’s Visual Arts Department, where I also obtained my PhD in Visual Arts in 2013.

I am the recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship, which I hold at the Centre for African and Asian Studies at the Humboldt University of Berlin, and a research fellowship at the Centre for Area Studies at Leipzig University. I am also an elected member of the South African Young Academy of Science.
