As a Runners-Up for the 2017 Eureka Prize, as a University Senior Research Fellow in the School of Physical Sciences of the University of Adelaide, as a Senior Lecturer in the School of Physics, UNSW (promoted 3.5 years after having been awarded my PhD), and as the holder of a 2012 ARC DECRA fellowship, I have constantly developed high quality research, contributed significantly to teaching activities, and actively serviced the scientific and general communities. Since the DECRA award, I have independently established research in Silicon-based Quantum Metrology.
I'm currently undertaking a PhD focused on the role of cytokines in neuronal injury and neurodegenerative diseases. This involves analysis of postmortem brain tissue from patients with Alzheimer's Disease and Motor Neurone Disease as well as in-vivo and in-vitro studies following neuronal injury.
My research interest is translational research of finding new targets to improve curative effect in breast cancer treatment. My previous project was about studying the effect of autophagy in breast cancer cell lines. Currently I'm studying on discovering the mechanism of ER reprograming in breast cancer and how it will affect ER-targeted therapy against BCa
I am aiming to determine the association between antenatal and birth factors and the risk of adverse health outcomes in the mother and offspring at 8-10 years after pregnancy/gestation. These adverse health outcomes include obesity, cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and impaired microvascular function.
