Personal profile

Biography

After completing a double bachelor degree in Physics and Engineering Science at UWA, I decided to combine my passions for technology, innovation and medicine through a research intensive masters degree in Medical Physics. My research was conducted as part of UWA's Bioimaging Research and Innovation for Translational Engineering laboratory at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, focusing on the utilisation of advanced optical imaging techniques for biological applications. Through my research, I developed a novel quantitative optical coherence elastography probe. Currently, I am further persuing biomedical optics research in the form of a PhD and look forward to continuing to work with collaborators on a wide range of advanced imaging techniques for biological applications.

Roles and responsibilities

Current PhD candidate at the The University of Western Australia's Bioimaging Research and Innovation for Translational Engineering laboratory, based out of the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. Current research focusses on the utilisation of advanced optical imaging techniques, specifically optical coherence tomography and optical coherence elastography for biological applications. Roles and responsibilities include the management and progression of various research projects within the fields of optics, computing and biomechanics.

Teaching overview

Teaching postgraduate level advanced optics. Specifically, the principles and applications of interferometery and spectroscopy and how these can be extended for use in high resolution biomedical imaging.
