Thato joined SERI as a researcher in March 2019. Her research explores the place of the law in society, policing, protests and other forms of public participation. She is interested in the ways in which the law can be used as a tool for justice as well as understanding the ways in which it is often weaponised against the vulnerable and marginalised groups in society.

Thato holds an M.A. in Politics (with distinction) from the University of the Witwatersrand and an M.Sc. in African Politics (with Merit) from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. She also holds a B.A. Joint Honours degree (Politics and International Relations) from the University of the Witwatersrand, where she was a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow.
