Chemistry is my passion and will be my career. My secondary school teacher made a big impact in my life and was a significant influence to go to Melbourne.
I love doing science, and love to learn. I found a research group that I really liked, and a topic that I found interesting, and threw myself into it. It’s important to do things that you enjoy and feel good about achieving.
Going to the chemistry building having discussions about chemistry or just life in general with fellow students, lecturers and lab demonstrators just makes me feel like I’m in such a community.
I've been motivated to pursue chemistry ever since Year 10 at school; unlocking the secrets of the physical world and using them for creative applications was just as alluring to me then as it is now.
I was inspired to study chemistry by the desire to understand how things work at an atomic level.
I hope to be able to communicate science across disciplinary boundaries and to synthesise and distil the information down to the level where policy-makers can use it effectively.
