After graduating from Imperial College, University of London in 2006 with first class honours in a Bachelor of Science degree and a distinction in a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, I developed an interest in neurodegenerative diseases. After completing physician training in Australia, I qualified as a neurologist in 2014. I commenced a PhD in the Ngo lab in 2015, investigating metabolic balance in MND and how metabolic dysfunction affects outcome in MND. I am currently the Australian and New Zealand Association of Neurologists/ National Health and Medical Research Council post-graduate scholar. My hope is that this research will contribute to knowledge that will ultimately aid in the development of new therapies to improve outcome for people living with MND.
