I am a strong supporter of women in STEMM. I started my journal in Health Sciences since 2008 with a double degree of Bachelor of Health Sciences and Master of Health Information Management at Latrobe University. I then moved into Medical Imaging Science and started my PhD in 2014. I won the 2017 University of Sydney Three Minutes Thesis (3MT) Competition during my PhD study. I am currently a Research Fellow at The Daffodil Centre and Sydney School of Public Health, The University of Sydney. I am a member of Executive Group of Cancer Diagnosis and Rehabilitation Theme at FHS and a member of MIOPeG group, Sydney Catalyst Translational Research, Sydney Vital Translational Cancer Research and Cancer Research Network and China Study Centre. My research interest covers epidemiology and screening of breast cancer, breast density and Digital Breast Tomosynthesis. I have published peer-review articles around breast cancer in the world-leading cancer journals. 

Tong identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
