HIV Cure research has been my passion since I left university the first time, in my graduate studies I developed an interest in HIV persistence and its establishment and maintenance in vivo. Some of my research goals include understanding HIV persistence, pushing the development of technology forward and generating a collaborative scientific research community. I am also very passionate about bridging the gap between scientist and the affected public and enjoy educating people about HIV/AIDS and the current research (YEAH and Red Cross Workshops, Melbourne, Australia).
