Personal profile


Kimberley undertook her PhD at The University of Melbourne's Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology located at the Royal Women's Hospital. Her thesis was entitled “The role of trophoblast derived proteins in the development of pre-eclampsia”. Here she investigated the role of proteins in the development of the pregnancy related disorder pre-eclampsia and sought to discover a biomarker that may aid in identifying women at risk of developing the disorder. Along with gaining her PhD, she has a Bachelor of Science Degree from Monash University and she was inspired to continue with research after she had completed her Honours Degree at the Monash Institute of Medical Research. In addition to her laboratory work, Kimberley has developed a broad range of research skills in qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research design.
