Overview

I completed my MBBS and PhD at UQ in 2015. The topic of my PhD was "The Anaphylatoxin Receptors in Neural Progenitor Cell Physiology". In this thesis we examined the function of the anaphylatoxin receptors, C3aR and C5aR1, in a novel location - the neural progenitor cells of the developing brain.

I am currently working as a medical officer at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital. I continue to have close links with my previous lab and would be happy to hear from potential students interested in projects in neuroinflammation or developmental neurobiology.
