​After completing high school on the sunshine coast curiosity for general science led to UQ. A scientific vector for nanotechnology-based nanomedicine was formed in SCMB where the fundamental knowledge of chemistry was gained and further expanded during honours. After graduation, a missing gap in biochemistry based biotechnology was identified and filled during a brief work experience at QUT. Now in AIBN, the gained knowledge is being assembled to solve ongoing and newly emerging health problems humans are facing.
