Marlies has a passion for both people and the natural world (especially insects). After working for fifteen years in malaria research, during which time she coordinated an Africa-wide collaboration to produce an atlas of this disease (called MARA), she turned to full-time parenting, homeschooling, consulting and self-publishing. Back in the formal working world she was employed for a while as research mentor at the UKZN School of Clinical Medicine, but now works as science officer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations organization.
