I am presently a doctoral research candidate in self-assembled amphiphiles and amyloid toxicity using High-throughput technique like the SAXS (Small-angle X-ray scattering) at the Australian Synchrotron for structural characterisation. The final outcome of my research will lead to a better understanding on the effects of the lipid bi-layer structure upon binding with the functional and irreversible amyloid peptides. In the future, this may aid in the development of therapies to prevent or reverse the amyloid peptide aggregation process. I am also an active member of the SEAC (Student Experience Advisory Committee) and HDR (Higher Degree by Research) for the College of Science, Engineering, and Health at RMIT nominated by the Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellors of Research and Innovation. I hope to continue this passion and commitment as a student and as a professional in the near future, preferably working for the pharmaceutical/life science industry upon completion of my studies.
