University Research Associate
School of Physical Sciences
Faculty of Sciences
I am an enthusiastic and professional postdoctoral research scientist, with passion for creative problem-solving, committed to delivering high quality scientific and practical solutions in transdisciplinary research.
In my current role as an NHMRC Grant-funded Researcher, I use my doctoral chemistry knowledge to facilitate collaboration between the physics and medical/biological aspects of biophotonic sensing and device translation/development.
I am also volunteer Science Presenter, running fun and interactive science workshops with kids aged 7-14 through Children's University, complete with slime, strawberries and the occasional explosion.
