I am a Ph.D. candidate with a strong biotechnology, biochemistry, and molecular biology foundation. My research is centred around the dynamic world of fungicides, where I employ a wide range of laboratory techniques and analytical skills to unravel the mysteries of fungal growth inhibition.
I did my master's in biotechnology from UWA under Professor Charles Bond in understanding and analysing the phase-separating domains in Human Paraspeckle Proteins. I possess laboratory skills and have expertise in handling a variety of instruments, including those used for Proteomics, Bacteriology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Microbiology, and Molecular Biology. Additionally, I'm proficient in conducting in-silico analyses and have intermediate-level data analysis and processing skills.
A deep commitment to global food security drives my research. By gaining insights into fungicide biotransformation, I aim to develop quantitative approaches for judicious fungicide deployment, minimising risks to non-target organisms and contributing to more sustainable management of fungal diseases.
