Personal profile


Completed a PhD in neuroscience in 2017 under A/Prof. Jennifer Rodger before moving to Okinawa, Japan as a post-doctoral research scholar with Asst.Prof Marylka Uusisaari (Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology). I returned to UWA as a split researcher and lecturer at the end of 2018 where I investigate neural plasticity in the motor circuits of the brain and teach into the undergraduate and postgraduate neuroscience courses.
