  • I completed my PhD degree under the supervision of Professor Fabienne Mackay, Dr Daniel Mark Andrews and Dr Kirsten Fairfax in September 2018. My PhD project studied the role of the BAFF/APRIL system in the biology of NK and iNKT cells. Immediately following my course completion, I took up the Research Officer role (Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Peter Doherty Institute; University of Melbourne), in assisting Dr Catherine Kennedy in investigating immune responses during gastrointestinal infections. I have also worked as a research assistant at the Department of Immunology, Alfred Hospital; Monash University before pursuing my PhD. My current research interest includes Innate Immunity, Mucosal Immunity and Tumour Immunology.
