After recently submitting my PhD thesis, I am now a research officer at the University of Queensland Diamantina Institute, researching the impact of the gut microbiota on the development of type 1 diabetes.
My PhD research focused on understanding how the gut microbiota affects chemotherapy-induced gastrointestinal injury. My research interests lie in understanding immune-microbiota interactions, and understanding how we can use these interactions to develop personalised care, whether that be during cancer treatment, or in lifelong autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes.
I aspire to a career where I am able to effect positive change in health care, whether this be in an academic role, or in a strategic, policy based role in government or not-for-profit.
I am passionate about science literacy in the community, and the formation of evidence-based health and scientific policy.
