Personal profile


I am a passionate medical physicist and engineer endeavouring to develop novel imaging techniques for cancer detection. During my PhD, I was a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration that received the “2016 Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics” and shared the $3,000,000 prize. Since completion of my PhD in 2017, I have been focusing on developing novel imaging tools for complete cancer removal during surgery for patients with breast cancer, which is world’s No. 1 cancer for women. This research has contributed to commercialisation of cancer imaging probes with a local start-up company OncoRes Medical. I am an inventor of a number of international patents developing next-generation cancer imaging devices, which have the potential to be widely used in rural and remote areas, improving equity of access to optimal cancer treatment across Western Australia. In 2019, I was highlighted by The Australian as one of “Australia’s top 40 researchers who are less than 10 years into their careers”. In 2021, I was awarded an Investigator Initiated Research Scheme Grant by National Breast Cancer Foundation. In addition, I was awarded the Raine Priming Grant by Raine Medical Research Foundation. As the top-ranked applicant in this grant, I was awarded the Raine Robson Fellow in November 2021.
