Current Honours student, working under supervision of Dr Kathy Gatford of the Robinson Research Institute, University of Adelaide

Having recently graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Health and Medical Sciences, I am currently undertaking an Honours research project within the Robinson Research Institute. This project employs an established sheep model of maternal asthma to investigate the increased risk of asthma observed in offspring born to mothers who experienced asthma during pregnancy, and whether this exposure influences the pathological airway remodelling evident in the lungs of asthma sufferers.

Influenced by my background in early childhood education, I am passionate about improving child health outcomes, and thus have a strong interest neonatal and paediatric medical research. I hope to establish my expertise in this area by pursuing a PhD in the future.

In 2021, I began tutoring and demonstrating for the undergraduate course Human Anatomy and Physiology (HAPI A & B)
