Hi, my name is Markus van Niekerk, I am 24 years old, South African born-and-raised from a small town called Hoedspruit. Upon completing high school in Pretoria, I started my medical studies at Riga Stradins University in Riga, Latvia. In my final year of studies, I conducted my research on “Female Masturbation Practices.” I was first interested in conducting more clinical research, but due to COVID-19 was limited to a Questionnaire based study as suggested by my supervisor. Upon analyzing the data from the questionnaire, I was surprised to see the large sample size that I have achieved for my work, which motivated me even more to ensure this important theme reach the scientific world.

As of 10 February 2023, I have attained my Medical Doctors Degree and am looking forward to working in either The Netherlands or Germany pursuing either Gynaecology and Obstetrics or Orthopaedics and Trauma surgery.
