With over ten years of experience in research and veterinary medicine, my next objective is to pursue laboratory animal medicine with a strong emphasis on primate medicine and pathology. I also hope to incorporate a PhD degree during further training. My ultimate goal is to balance research and medicine to collaborate with other researchers and lead research projects across a number of disciplines. A strong teaching and mentoring component is also very important to me.
