a little bit about me

I am a Ph.D. student in the CORe Unit at the University of Melbourne and a clinical fellow in the Multiple Sclerosis & Neuroimmunology Service at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

I completed my training in neurology at the University of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa in 2015.  Under the supervision of A/Prof Tomas Kalincik, Dr Charles Malpas and Prof Helmut Butzkueven, I am currently developing my analytical skills in Multiple Sclerosis related outcomes based research. This opportunity has been made possible through funding from the University of Melbourne, Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) and Biogen.
