I am a Master of Pharmacy (M.Pharm.) Student at Trinity College Dublin with a strong interest in global/population health, health services, preventive medicine, natural products, and sustainable development. For my Laidlaw research project, I investigated the therapeutic potential of a natural-occurring vitamin called ergothioneine, mostly found in mushrooms, on the development of idiopathic and bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in vitro; PI: Prof. Carsten Ehrhardt. Beyond that, I have had extensive research experiences across multiple fields, including medical humanities, digital archival research, plant metabolomics, travel health and pharmacy practice. In Sep 2020, I will embark on an interdisciplinary Population Health PhD between Medication Management and Organisational Psychology at Trinity. The PhD project will aim to explore medication practices and safety vulnerabilities in lay people through the lens of system-based thinking. During my free time, you'll most likely find me practising yoga and meditation in my room! If you're interested to have a chat about anything, don't hesitate to drop a line! Look forward to hearing from you! :)
