I am a Synthetic Organic Chemist with extensive experience in peptide synthesis and electron transfer in peptides. I completed a PhD with the Abell group at Adelaide University in 2015, and since then have been employed as a post-doctoral fellow within the same group. I have also enjoyed an association with IPAS and particularly, the CNBP. My current work involves a number of areas including medical research, and developing photoswitchable sensors for molecular interaction. During the past few years I have gained valuable insights regarding the techniques required to synthesize and characterize various molecules, such as HPLC, NMR, mass spectroscopy and molecular modelling.
