Personal profile


As a paediatrician and neonatologist towards the end of training, I am interesting in fields of paediatrics cardiology using my skills developed previously as an echocardiographer. At present I am working for Perth Children's Hospital whilst completing a PhD in Indigenous Health in Rheumatic Heart Disease via the University of Western Australia and Telethon Kid's Institute with world leaders in the field. My current roles include Paediatric Fellow at the Child and Adolescent Health Service, Clinical Tutor and Research Associate at the University of Western Australia, member of the Cardiac Society Paediatric and Congenital Council, Advisor to the WA Sepsis Working Group and Member of the Digital Advisory Panel of the Rare Diseases Network.

My work looks at the novel measurement of the heart in kids suffering from rheumatic heart disease to see if we can better predict prognosis and improve timing for surgery. I have been honoured to be a past recipient of the Child and Adolescent Health Service Registrar Research Fellowship, the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand Bayer Grant, Commonwealth Scholarship for Science, Royal Australasian College of Physicians Eric Burnard Grant and the University of Western Australia Postgraduate Award. I have also been nominated twice for the Paediatric and Congenital Prize at The Cardiac Society ASM, nominated for AMA Junior Doctor of the Year in 2022, keynote speaker at AMA MedCon '22 and presented my work on rheumatic heart disease at the American Society of Echocardiography Conference in 2022.
