I am Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the Namibia University of Science and Technology.  My vision is to impart sound academic and technical skills and through a strong commitment to the achieving of the university’s goals in ICT.  In doing this I would like to improve my capabilities through research and help simplify challenges through teamwork. I have over 15 years of experience in lecturing at different universities in Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia.  I am a holder of a Masters’ Degree in Computer Science and am currently pursuing a PhD in Computer Science with a focus on Cloud Forensics.  I have also developed database applications with a focus on security, an area I am currently teaching among others.  My area of focus is in the field of cyber security and to this end I give instruction in courses like Computer Forensics, Database Security and Data Protection and Network security.  I am a member of the Digital Forensics Computing and Cyber Security research cluster in the Faculty of computing and Informatics, one of whose research focus is on Child Online Protection.  I am also involved in Joint research on Cloud Forensics with The University of Pretoria.
