I grew up in Adelaide and studied at Flinders University before moving to the Australian National University for Honours and Doctoral studies with Prof. Michael Sherburn. In 2013 I moved to the Technische Universität Berlin on an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship to work in the group of Prof. Martin Oestreich. In 2015 I moved to Massey University in Auckland as lecturer and started my independent laboratory. In early 2018 the group moved to University of Adelaide.
