About Mpilo Khumalo

I am currently a PhD candidate at Stellenbosch University. My research project is broadly called The EucXylo Phenomenological Trial, where I am studying all the ecophysiological processes and environmental conditions that influence the formation of wood in forest trees.

I am also a Data Scientist at Bantubyte. I get to work with skillful data scientists, data engineers, advanced analysts , machine learning engineers and software developers to provide custom tailored solutions to various organisations.

In my ‘free time’ I enjoy cycling, climbing rocks and mountains, physical and mental exercises, and learning new languages (currently German and Afrikaans).

Feel free to contact me.
