Wikus joined Praelexis in 2013 as one of the first two employees, having just completed his MscEng in robotics and computer vision. He is excited about growing with the company, learning new domains and discovering insights hidden in data. Wikus grew up in Stellenbosch and loves the mountains and the sea, heading in those directions whenever possible. He is an avid mountain hiker and kayaker, and hitting the road in his bakkie to all the wild and lonely places of Africa is something that makes him truly happy. However, he also avers that nothing beats a good braai with friends at some place with a view of Stellenbosch Mountain.
