I am medical doctor and PhD candidate at the UWA School of Surgery through Ear Science Institute Australia. My dream is to one day be a travelling surgeon doing pro-bono surgery in developing nations. I graduated from UWA Medical School with Honours in 2014, after first starting university with two years of Dentistry. I have a passion for in research translation, innovation, and medical start-up, recently working with a team through SPARK Co-Lab to create a patented device that aims to lower the incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia in ICU. My PhD will investigate how we can repair chronic tympanic membrane (eardrum) perforations through 3D printing technology. Outside of medicine, I love composing and playing music. I hold a diploma in piano performance (AMusA and DipABRSM) and play the saxophone, guitar and drums at my local church.
