I am an aspiring molecular neuroscientist with a keen interest in acquiring and sharing knowledge. Having completed my BSc. (Hons) research at the University of Oxford, in a molecular neuroscience laboratory, I became fascinated by how the brain works and was curious to learn more. Consequently, I am completing my PhD in developing novel technologies to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of learning and memory. 

My time in the UK also gave me the "travel bug" and my next goal is travelling around the US and Asia. In my spare time I play the piano, volunteer at hospitals and tutor students hoping to nurture a love of learning as I am particularly passionate about advocating the importance of education and scientific innovation benefiting society.
