Currently living on unceded land known as Brisbane. Originally lived on the lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin nation in Naarm.
Coming from a performing arts background, I now likes to take to the scientific stage and showcase STEM. I'm passionate about science education and the molecular understanding of disease.
I'm a PhD candidate in the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (at UQ) as a Global Challenges Scholar. I'm working on an antimicrobial project in the fields of medicinal chemistry and molecular biology.
Having completed a BSc (Chemistry & Microbiology) and BSc (Hons, Bioinorganic chemistry) I'm confident transforming complex theoretical and practical knowledge to a range of audiences.
I have mentored with In2Science since 2018 to various high school students from year 7-12, conducting one-on-one mentoring, focus groups, and class lessons. I was recently awarded the Dedication Award for the Year (2021) and was a finalist for the Best Role Model of the Year (2018). I have also mentored tertiary students and have spoken to first and secondary year cohorts through internal volunteering programs at La Trobe University.
