Biography

I'm an ambitious individual and a medical doctor who’d like to explore and address public health issues that affect disadvantaged Australian and international communities. My areas of interest include antibiotic resistance, infectious diseases, and the role of immunisation in reducing the overall burden of disease.

Having graduated as a University Medallist, I aspire to be a community leader in the capacity of doctor, academic, mentor, and health advocate. I am driven by a strong conviction for assisting those less fortunate.

I enjoy photography, travelling, running and playing sports, particularly tennis and soccer. My hundreds of GoPro videos are yet to be edited.
