Current PhD Candidate and member of the Translational Neuropathology Laboratory and Brain Injury Research Group within the Adelaide Medical School at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. Affiliated with the NeuroSurgical Research Foundation and the National Health and Medical Research Council.
My current research focus: IMPROVING CLINICAL TRANSLATION IN TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY: THE USE OF PRE-CLINICAL RESEARCH MODELS
Investigating the pattern of axonal injury in a pre-clinical model of traumatic brain injury. Damage to the axonal white matter tracts within the brain is the leading cause of death and disability in patients suffering TBI. In order to ascertain a greater understanding of the anatomical changes and the effects these have, I am currently developing a more clinically translatable model of TBI, which can then be used to develop targeted treatment strategies and potential pharmacotherapies.
