Biography

As an aspiring bioinformatician, I have a passion for leveraging mathematics and statistics to address problems in our modern world. My PhD project will aim to develop new methodologies for the integration of genome sequencing and imaging data into the care of transplant patients in Australia. I aspire to demonstrate how we can use modern statistical methods, such as machine learning, to improve outcomes in the healthcare sector.

 

Since recently retiring from competitive swimming, I work as a swimming instructor, teaching children the very essential skills to stay safe around the water. In addition, I utilise this expertise to teach children with disabilities how to swim, I find this work most rewarding.
