After graduating from the University of Queensland in 2007, I worked in a Biotech company (Alchemia), for almost two years. In the company I was heavily involved in synthesizing Galactose and Glucose building blocks and further in glycosylations.
Then I joined Profesor David Fairlie’s group to do PhD for advancement of my scientific career.

Research interests:

- Designing and synthesising inhibitors for HDACs
- Enzyme assays to identify the selective HDAC inhibitors.
