I started my research journey in 2008 where I did my honours thesis investigating the effects of macronutrients on behavioural and physiological responses in fish. I then shifted models, using a similar framework in mice - this time, with the goal of understanding how macronutritients and energy influenced latelife health and longevity.  I spent my PhD on this topic and continue to work in this field, expanding on previous findings and asking new questions that will expand our current knowledge in the field of nutrition and ageing.

In addition to my reserach, I am also a third year medical student at the University of Notre Dame, Sydney and with the aim of working across basic science, clinical research, and patient care.
