After completing my Bachelor of Science at the University of Queensland with majors in zoology and geographical science, I took time off Uni to volunteer in various labs and as such developed an interest in the fitness and physiology of animals. Through this, I came across the Wilson performance lab and developed an honours program with Robbie Wilson to look at the bioaccumulation of manganese in northern quolls and bandicoots via inhalation and ingestion on Groote Eylandt.
