We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Dr Leandra Moller, who will take on a technical support and lab management role for EucXylo. Leandra officially takes up her duties from 1 November 2019, but will be starting a little earlier to help make good progress with planned lab upgrades and other urgent work! Leandra comes with a strong background in lab-based research, having previously been at Horticultural Science at Stellenbosch, where she undertook her PhD (on effects of soil yeasts on growth of lupin and wheat) and held a post-doctoral fellowship. She is also a keen novice painter and a pianist. Welcome to the team, Leandra!
