Personal profile


Jordyn is a Vascular Pathophysiology and Therapeutics Group member in the Department of Physiology, within the Biomedicine Discovery Institute at Monash University. Jordyn's research focuses on the role of inflammation in peripheral artery diseases, including atherosclerosis. Jordyn recently completed her Ph.D. at La Trobe University focussing on the role of interleukin-18 in the kidney inflammation that leads to hypertension (2021). Her Ph.D thesis was awarded the Nancy Millis Medal which recognises outstanding doctoral theses.

For her scientific work, Jordyn has been selected as a finalist in award sessions at both national and international conferences, recently receiving the High Blood Pressure Council of Australia Judith Whitworth abstract award (2019) and the best oral presentation at the Baker/La Trobe Cardiovascular Symposium (2020). Jordyn was also selected to deliver an oral presentation at Experimental Biology (San Diego, USA, 2018), and she was a Young Investigator finalist for the Australia New Zealand Society of Nephrology national conference (Sydney, 2018), The Asian-Pacific Society of Hypertension (Brisbane, 2019) and the Australian Atherosclerosis Society Rising Stars Symposium Series (2021). Jordyn’s other passions include raising awareness of cardiovascular disease research and improving scientific literacy, which has led her to participate in the Australian Cardiovascular Alliance Cardiovascular Champions Program, eMentoring for In2Science (2019), 20 PhDs in 20 minutes on 3RRR (2019), Skype a Scientist (2020), 3-minute thesis competition (2018-2020), Pint of Science (#PintAUOnline, 2020), the Visualise Your Thesis competition (VYT, 2020) and Nerd Nite (2021). Jordyn’s VYT entry was awarded first place in the La Trobe competition and was entered in the international VYT competition.
