I’m a PhD student under the supervision of A/Prof Grant Drummond and Prof Chris Sobey in the Vascular Biology and Immunopharmacology Group, Cardiovascular Disease Program, Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Department of Pharmacology, Monash University.

The primary focus of my PhD studies are to better understand the immunological mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of hypertension. In particular, my research has centered around a novel role for B cells/antibodies and macrophage-derived IGF-1 as mediators of vascular fibrosis, stiffening and elevated blood pressure.
