PhD, BOptom (Hons), GradCertOcTher
As an optometrist and postdoctoral fellow, my research focuses on improving access to eye care, promoting healthy ageing and preventing injuries such as falls.
I currently serve on the Vision 2020 Australia Prevention and Early Intervention Committee.
I am interested in supporting and promoting the interests of early career academics through my roles as Committee Member of the Early Career Academic Network, Medicine & Health Subcommittee and the Co-chair of the Early Career Research Group at the School of Optometry and Vision Science.
I completed my PhD at the Centre for Eye Health, on collaborative care and patient-monitoring of intraocular pressure in glaucoma. I was Senior Staff Optometrist at the Centre Eye Health (2016-2021) and previously held positions at the Australian College of Optometry, in private and corporate practices in NSW and Victoria. I also volunteered at University of Medicine Pham Ngoc Thach in Ho Chi Minh City (2015), Vietnam to help establish the optometry education program as part the Australian Volunteers Program, in conjunction with the Brien Holden Foundation.
