About me

I was born and raised in The Kingdom of Lesotho.

Currently, I am a PhD Candidate in Computer Science at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, based in the ICT for Development Research Centre.

My academic interests include the use of ICTs in promoting health and education, User Experience Design, and Web Science/Internet Science. My current research focuses on low literacy users’ access to educational content, the web and other ICT services.

I hold a Master's degree in Computer Science from UCT (awarded with distinction in 2013), and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Systems and Networks Engineering from NUL (graduated with First Class in 2009).

Professionally, I am a lecturer in Computer Science at the National University of Lesotho, teaching such courses as Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Expert Systems, and Programming Fundamentals. Early in 2013, I worked as a User Experience Researcher for OpenITP under the GNOME Outreach Program for Women as an intern. Outside school and work, I am passionate about contributing to the improvement of the health, education, and livehood of women and girls in Africa.
