I have completed my PhD on lithium metal batteries in 2016 at Swinburne University of Technology in collaboration with CSIRO. I was also involved in a commercial project on batteries as Research Technician at CSIRO during 2016. In my current position as Experimental Scientist I am working on different aspects of energy storage devices (mainly lithium metal and lithium ion batteries) encompassing electrodes fabrication, electrolytes optimisation, materials characterisation, cell/ battery prototyping and testing, and data analysis. I am also supervising postgraduate students for their research on lithium batteries, managing battery prototyping laboratories and leading projects on lithium batteries.

I am also an advocate for facilitating women’s networking in science and their career skill development by my involvement in Women in Chemistry (WinC) group, part of RACI Victoria, since 2014. I chaired the group in 2019 in which the group was positioned "Number One” RACI Victoria Branch Group of the Year 2019, for the first time since WinC has founded.

I am supporting RACI Mentoring Program since January 2021 as mentor.

I was honoured to receive a 2020 L’Oréal Australia and New Zealand For Women in Science Fellowship for my work on developing the next generation of lithium batteries that offer higher energy and longer life.
