I am a Scientia PhD Scholar at UNSW exploring nanomedicine as a potential therapeutic for pancreatic cancer. I am supervised by Associate Professor Phoebe Phillips, Professor David Goldstein, Dr George Sharbeen, Associate Professor Joshua McCarroll, and Professor Cyrille Boyer. Supported by the highly prestigious UNSW Scientia PhD Scholarship, my project is titled: Reprogramming the Stroma using Gene Silencing Nano-Drugs to Inhibit Pancreatic Tumours. I have won several awards during my PhD including Winner of the 2019 UNSW 3-Minute Thesis Competition, and have presented my work at several national and international conferences. I have also been awarded a grant from Tour de Cure to develop a novel pre-clinical model of pancreatic cancer.
