Personal profile

I am a multidisciplinary researcher with >12 years of experience performing scientific research with real-life outcomes. I have a PhD in stem cell and molecular biology from CSU, where I used lentiviral vectors to reprogram equine adult stem cells into neural cell types, with prospective roles in regenerative medicine, disease modelling, and drug screening. Following my PhD, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at UQ, investigating a potential treatment for medulloblastoma, the most common malignant paediatric brain tumour, using a combination of cell culture and genetic mouse models. I am currently a research fellow in the Gulbali Institute’s Centre for Biosecurity, using structural biology techniques to develop vaccines and therapeutics against current and emerging pathogens threatening Australia’s biosecurity.
