More Information
I am very passionate about conducting translational research that will contribute significantly to the development of the world. My current research is focused on Unraveling the Metabolic Fate of novel therapeutic dimer compounds for Parkinson's disease (PD). The outcome of this study will contribute to the development of therapeutic and diagnostic bifunctional dimer compounds that will help improve clinical outcome in PD.
I have gained significant experience in bioanalytical techniques (including High-Performance Liquid chromatography (HPLC) and analytical mass spectrometry), enzymatic reaction kinetics, in-vitro drug metabolism models, Bioanalytical method validation, experimental design and literature review.
My strengthsfinder assessment indicates that my top 5 strengths are Achiever, Learner, Responsibility, Significance, and Focus. This truly resonates well with me and also explains my drive for success.
I am also very interested in poetry and table tennis.
