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 like to take to the scientific stage and showcase STEM. I'm passionate about science education and communication, as well as the molecular understanding of disease.
I am a PhD candidate at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (UQ) as a Global Challenges Scholar. I work on an antimicrobial project in the fields of organic (synthetic) chemistry and molecular biology. Previously completed a BSc (Chemistry & Microbiology) and BSc (Hons, Bioinorganic chemistry).
I have volunteered with In2Science since 2018 to various high school students from year 7-12, conducting one-on-one mentoring, focus groups, and class lessons. Notable achievements include the Dedication Award for the Year (2021) and 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. Most recently I gave a talk for the National Youth Science Forum (Feb, 2023). I currently tutor second year experimental chemistry.
