I am a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide. I am part of a cross disciplinary project 'Organisms and Us', with a personal interest in the history of animal research ethics in Australia. My research looks at both historical and current practices in animal research, with interests in social and political catalysts of change, transparency in research, and translation of animal models to human outcomes. My background is in Psychology and I graduated with first class honours in 2015.
