Biography

I'm an ambitious medical doctor studying a Masters of Public Health / International Public Health at UNSW, whilst undertaking clinical training. I’d like to explore and address public health issues that affect disadvantaged Australian and international communities. In late 2018, I was fortunate enough to complete an internship with the World Health Organisation.

 

I aspire to be a community leader in the capacity of doctor, academic, mentor, and health advocate. I'm driven by a strong conviction for helping the less fortunate. Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, photography and playing sports, particularly tennis and soccer. My hundreds of GoPro videos are yet to be edited.
