Biography

I am completing my PhD in physical chemistry at the ANU on the topic of electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy. Equipped with magnets and microwaves, I aim to study the microscopic workings of the biological machinery that underpins human health and disease.

 

My PhD project will focus on developing new spectroscopic methods for visualising biomolecular structure, with the aim of enhancing early stage drug development. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy is an exciting coalescence of concrete theory and physics with the abstractness of the natural world. I aspire to explore and test the horizons of technological innovation in this area.

 

Alongside my studies I enjoy playing music, doing aerial silks, learning foreign languages, as well as exploring the more macroscopic outdoors through hiking.

Skills & Expertise

  • Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy
  • Scientific coding and problem solving
  • Biomolecular Chemistry
  • Science communication and undergraduate teaching
  • Classical piano and playing music in ensembles

"The best advice I’ve been given is to seek clarity and embrace uncertainty."
