Andrea completed her BSc (Applied Maths and Physics) and BSc hons (Applied Maths) at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, after which she moved to the Marine Resource Assessment and Management Group, UCT, to do her Masters, which involved population assessments of the Southern Hemisphere humpback whale and the East Coast rock lobster. She completed her PhD in early 2016, which aimed to model cannibalism and predation in the Cape hake resource. She is currently continuing her development of the hake multispecies model at MARAM under a Claude Leon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship.
