PhD Candidate

School of Biological Sciences

Faculty of Sciences

After completing a Bachelor of Science (Adv), I began research in 2018 as an Honours student in the Cell Signalling and Gene Regulation lab under Professor Christopher Proud at SAHMRI. I studied lysosomal genes not regulated by transcription factor EB. In 2019, I joined Dr Nicholas Eyre in the Molecular Virology Group in the Molecular Life Sciences building of Adelaide University. We are currently using Next Generation Sequencing to investigate dengue virus to an amino acid level.
