Undergraduate Teaching: I'm an experienced higher education academic with an extensive education portfolio in teaching and learning and curriculum development in biomedical sciences. I am passionate about biomedical advocacy and to inspire students to the cross-discipline nature of biomedical sciences. I currently contribute to teaching activities or as unit coordinator for the following units.

  • LQB184 Introduction to Biomedical Science
  • LQB286 Quantitative Skills for Health Professionals
  • LQB381 Biochemistry
  • LQB655 Clinical and Applied Haematology

Supervision of Research Students: The main focus of my research which aims to improve the risk of thrombosis (blood clots) by understanding the mechanisms of blood coagulation that impact coagulopathy in various diseases, transfusion and/or resuscitation practices.
