Over the past 20 years, I have developed a long-standing research career including academic positions at the University of Pennsylvania in the USA and at the University of New South Wales in Australia. More recently, I supplemented my theoretical skills with professional, first-hand knowledge as a Registered Nurse, which allowed me to further refine my knowledge and understanding of clinical requirements, protocols, and processes within the Australian healthcare system.
The combination of research and clinical experience, in combination with my desire to advance medicine, put me in an ideal position to understand all aspects of healthcare research, which I have conducted on the molecular level as well as through clinical trials testing medical devices and pharmaceutical therapies. Overall, I am passionate about putting patients at the centre of evidence-based clinical care and advance research to improve outcomes through well implemented clinical trials and cutting-edge technology.
