I am a dedicated professional with a rich background in Pharmacology and Bioscience, currently serving as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Buckingham’s Clore laboratory.


  • PhD in Pharmacology and Bioscience (investigating the role of entero-insular axis in insulin dysregulation through a mechanistic study for disease prevention) – Queensland University of Technology – Australia
  • Master of Pharmacy – Griffith University – Australia
  • Honours in Clinical Pharmacology (developing an HPLC method to separate and quantify metoprolol enantiomers in plasma of patients with ischaemic heart disease) – The University of Adelaide – Australia
  • Bachelor of Meical Science (specialising in Physiology & Neuroscience) – Flinders University – Australia

Research Interests

  • The role of entero-insular axis (incretin hormone receptor genes) in insulin dysregulation
  • The role of sweet-taste receptors in glucose uptake in the small intestine and their downstream consequences
  • Drug discovery (plant-based) in the field of metabolic syndrome
  • Inflammation and oxidative stress in diabetes, obesity, and degenerative diseases

Teaching Experience

  • Lecturer in Human Pharmacology and Therapeutics
    College of Medicine & Public Health, Flinders University, Australia
  • Sessional Academic (Tutoring, Demonstrating, and Marking) in the following topics within the College of Medicine & Public Health:
    – Human Physiology
    – Clinical Skills
    – Skills for Medical Scientist

Current Role and Research Focus

Presently, I serve as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Buckingham, Faculty of Health and Medicine – Clore laboratory. In this capacity, I am deeply involved in drug discovery research, particularly in the realms of diabetes, inflammation, and obesity.

Selected research skills and techniques:

  • Molecular biology
  • Chromatography
  • Biochemical and kinetic assays
  • In silico modelling
  • Statistical analysis

Collaboration and Future Endeavours:

Having worked across diverse workplace environments, including universities, hospitals, research centres, and pharmacies, I bring a comprehensive perspective to my research and teaching. I am dedicated to fostering collaboration, teaching undergraduate students, and supervising higher degree research students.

Feel free to connect with me for discussions, collaborations, or inquiries. Together, let’s explore new horizons in the dynamic intersection of pharmacology, bioscience, and healthcare.
