Personal profile

Research interests

Being a research scientist has allowed me the opportunity to think creatively in an area I am passionate about.

In 2005 I graduated with Honours from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology before beginning my career in a molecular diagnostic lab with Primary Industries & Resources of South Australia. My roles within The Department of Sustainable Systems covered vast areas of diagnostic testing and research including quarantine soil testing for agronomists and quality testing for hay export, to chicken gut nutrition and marine biosecurity of Australian marine ports. Learning a great deal in molecular techniques I then transitioned to medical research as a research assistant with the Adelaide Lab of Ophthalmology, South Australia, in 2009, with a focus on eye diseases of the retina. During my 10 year tenure within the ophthalmology department I developed advanced skills, knowledge and experience. I independently became proficient in operating equipment that is integral to the successful functioning of the ophthalmology research group and specialised in lasers and microsurgical techniques. During my employment, I also took on the responsibility of training and supporting new staff and students in laboratory techniques, conduct, management systems, and providing appropriate advice and direction alongside senior research scientists. During my employment, I also successfully completed and graduated in a Master of Philosophy in Ophthalmology. This has allowed me to contribute and publish primary- and middle-author publications in high-ranking, international peer-reviewed, scientific journals. As a result of my research, I have presented experimental findings at a number of national and international scientific conferences. This has led to my current position at Bond University, enrolled as a PhD candidate in 2020 with the Clem Jonce Centre for Regenerative Medicine within the Faculty of Health Science & Medicine. In particular, I am now focusing on Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), one of the leading causes of blindness in the aging population. My role and project are to develop a model of AMD using lasers and to trial new therapies in the hope to slow the progression of this blinding condition.
