PhD Candidate

School of Agriculture, Food and Wine

Faculty of Sciences


Currently I am a PhD candidate in the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine under the supervision of Prof. Rachel Burton and Dr Tina Bianco-Miotto. My PhD project explores natural variation in the seed composition of the Plantago genus as a source of novel food ingredients and nutritional supplements.

I am very passionate about science education, science communication and citizen science. In 2017, I was honoured to be recognised by the University of Adelaide for my work with Children's University's Regional Lecture Series program and awarded the Vice Chancellor's Student Volunteer of the Year Award. Watch the video below by Children's University Australia where I talk about study, making mistakes and following your passion.
