Biography

I am a biomedical researcher with skills in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell culture, protein purification and nanomaterials. For my PhD, I investigated the potential of protein nano fibrils to modulate the proteinase activity to aid wound healing and graduated from the University of Auckland in 2019. I currently work on a variety of biomedical research projects in the Applied Surgery and Metabolism Laboratory led by Professor John Windsor, Professor Anthony Phillips and Associate Professor Tony Hickey.
