Annika is currently a first year master’s student as part of the Unit for Environmental Sciences and Management at the North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus. Her research is focused on using biological analysis to test and monitor water quality in South Africa. She is a “save the world” kind of person and if she can do it through science, it is even better. For her project, she is testing the water quality of freshwater sources in Wakkerstroom using cell-based bio-assays. She is also currently the lab manager of our chemistry lab.
