BIO:

I am starting as a PhD student in the Clear Vision Research laboratory. I completed a Bachelor of Science with first class Honours in the University of Sydney. In 2019 I received the KT-Tan scholarship, allowing me to undertake a PhD in vision science. My PhD research will focus on exploring the mechanisms and therapeutic effects of 670nm light therapy for retinopathy in pre-term babies, and characterizing the inflammatory microRNA profile in a light damage model of wet AMD.
