Research Activities

I completed my Bachelor of Science (Honours) at the Burnet Institute through Monash University in 2018. The project aimed to improve our understanding of emerging viral diseases by characterising the immune repertoire of bats, which are a major reservoir of viruses such as Ebola, SARS-CoRV, Hendra and Nipah, and was titled 'the antiviral activity of bat APOBEC3 proteins'.

I am currently working jointly as a research assistant with the Retroviral Biology and Antivirals Laboratory and the Viral Entry and Vaccines Laboratory at the Burnet Institute. I am particularly interested in the prevention of diseases that are endemic in developing nations, such as HIV,  through combining my areas of interest in microbiology, immunology and international development.
