I am in my final year of Bachelor of Secondary Education (Honours) and Bachelor of Science at Monash University. In 2018, I presented my research on the “Effect of Vitamin D on Multiple Sclerosis” at the ‘International Conference Undergraduate Research’ (ICUR). I later continued to explore my research journey through the Centre for Undergraduate Research Initiatives and Excellence (CURIE) which has given me an extraordinary platform to work with students alongside build my passion for research, specifically in the field of Multiple Sclerosis.
