I am a PhD student working with the Adelaide Cystic Fibrosis Airway Research Group based in the Women's and Children's Hospital.

I completed a Bachelor of Animal Science at The University of Adelaide and spent 8 years working in animal
laboratories. In 2018 I joined Cystic Fibrosis Airway Research Group as a Research Assistant. My role primary
involves overseeing the CF rat colony and assisting with rat procedures. In 2019, I undertook an honours project where
I was awarded First Class Honours. This project successfully showed for the first time CFTR correction in vivo in the
nasal airway epithelium of CF rat models, after the delivery of lentiviral vector. I have since enrolled into a PhD project in 2021, continuing to improve the effectiveness of airway lentiviral gene therapy for cystic fibrosis.
