I am a current PhD candidate and Associate Lecturer in the School of Optometry and Vision Science at UNSW. My research interests lie in improving detection, diagnosis and monitoring of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), with my current doctoral studies focusing on improving the identification of patients at highest risk of vision loss from AMD through improved prognostic biomarker assessment and home monitoring. Before embarking on my research career, I started in the field of Medical Science with majors in Anatomy and Pathology at UNSW Medicine.
Along with research, I have a particular passion for teaching and sharing knowledge to students in ways that are understandable and engaging. I have taught a variety of courses across both the faculties of Medicine and Science at UNSW, and am also involved as an educator in Pathology at the Museum of Human Disease at UNSW.
