Dr Toefy

My research has focused on eutrophication and the examination of organic carbon, nitrogen and trace metals in sediments on the west coast of South Africa. I have also examined the effects these factors have on the diversity and assemblage structures of foraminifera.

I have supervised BTECH and MTECH Oceanography students on a variety of projects which have mainly focused on marine pollution indicators and marine benthic biodiversity.

While this has been my main focus, I am not confined to projects in this subject range and would be capable of supervising other project types based in the marine environment.
