I am a Professor in the School of Economics at the University of Cape Town and the Director of the Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit (SALDRU). I hold the DST-NRF National Research Chair of Poverty and Inequality Research and I am an IZA Research Fellow.

I have been the PI of South Africa’s national household panel survey, the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS), since 2007.  In 2013, I was appointed as the Pro Vice-Chancellor of the Poverty and Inequality Initiative at UCT.

My research focuses on South African poverty, inequality and labour market dynamics using survey data and, in particular, panel data.
