 I am currently a  lecturer in the Mercantile Law Department within the Faculty of Law at the University of the Western Cape.

I earned my LLD in Mercantile  Law at the University of the Western Cape in 2018 with a graduate specialisation in International Investment Law.  My doctoral thesis focused on Rethinking the Law of Foreign Direct Investment in Zimbabwe. The thesis was lauded by all examiners and recommended for publication as a book. At present, I am working on publishing the manuscript as a book with African Sun Publishers.

Prior to this I completed a masters in mercantile law at the same institution. My thesis was on digital taxation,  examining how online businesses operating in South Africa should be taxed. I also hold a bachelor of laws and a bachelor of commerce in law from the University of the Western Cape.

At present, I teach four different courses, namely; the Law of Payment Instruments, Competition Law, the Law of Insolvency and Communications Transactions Law. My research interests are in International Investment Law, International Human Rights Law and Cyber Law.  I have published a number of articles in these areas and I currently supervising 5 masters students and 3 doctoral students in these areas.
