Alongside research, I engage in public scholarship to ensure my findings contribute to building a more socially just world. I have published newspaper articles in GroundUp, co-wrote a documentary for Cutting Edge, and participated in litigation at the Constitutional Court. I have also advised numerous government agencies, including the South African Social Security Agency, Department of Social Development, the National Credit Regulator, the National Treasury, the South African Reserve Bank, and the National Payment System.
My work has led to several important real-world outcomes. I am very proud to have been part of the Black Sash's campaigns to bring grant payment under public (not private) control. We are currently working to diminish allowable interest rates on credit; enact basic income support; and protect personal information from predatory companies.
