Personal profile

Biography

I am currently completing my medical internship at Monash Health, after graduating from my medical degree and PhD at Monash University.

Translational research is important in improving health care, and I believe that it is very powerful in stimulating changes which benefit patient care. I recently completed my PhD at the Australian Centre of Blood Diseases (ACBD) in collaboration with Monash Infectious Diseases in 2019, under the guidance of Associate Professor Robert K Andrews and Associate Professor Ian J Woolley. During my PhD, I worked collaboratively with the Spleen Registry to explore avenues to improve long-term outcomes for individuals with absent or reduced splenic function. During my PhD I had the opportunity to facilitate collaborations internationally and interstate, which I hope to continue facilitating throughout my career.

I am passionate about social equality and believes that everyone, regardless of race, gender, social economic status, should equitable access and opportunities to achieve their goals. I am a big advocate for self-development and self-improvement and I enjoy challenging and engaging myself in personal and professional development events. In my spare time I am also a secondary school tutor and a mentor for medical students.
