MS-Office (Excel, Power-Point, Word)
Over the years, through my geological studies at the University of Pretoria, I have learned and gained experience to use EXCEL as a data capturing tool and creating spreadsheets for calculations and analyses. I have used MS Power-Point as a tool for conducting my research presentations, which is essential for my oral communication skills. My skills in using MS Word has been acquired through years of report-writing and formatting during my studies at the University of Pretoria.

Geological Mapping and Modelling of the Proterozoic Lower Dullstroom Formation
My honours project forms part of an on-going study of mapping the volcanic sequence of the Rooiberg Group of South Africa. Currently, the project is focusing on mapping the lowermost formation of the Rooiberg Group which is known as the Dullstroom Formation. The project involved conducting a desktop study of the Dullstroom area, which has outcrops of the Dullstroom Formation, and collecting samples in the field for analysis and data collection. From the data obtained, the aim was to interpret the information and produce a detailed geological map of the study area and derive a geodynamic emplacement model for the Dullstroom Formation. Working on the project has enabled me to gain skills in field work, mapping, sample collection and sample preparation for analysis. In conjunction, I have acquired skills in critically analysing data and interpreting it in order to derive a geological model which explains the emplacement mechanisms of the Dullstroom Formation.
