I would be defined as a third culture kid, having lived in six countries as of now. I became a part of the Monash community in 2015 as a PhD student in the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. I was keen to join the MPAEC due to its opportunities to allow me a chance to make a difference in the postgraduate student experience at Monash.
My research project focuses on developing delivery systems to direct drugs to the lymphatic system specifically in the context of treating acute diseases such as sepsis and acute pancreatitis.
I enjoy doing a variety of physical activities including running, badminton, and swimming. In addition, I’ve always been keen on picking up how to play new musical instruments. Right now I particularly enjoy playing the piano, ukulele and Chinese zither (gu zheng).
