Research assistant

My role as a research assistant is to support project leads and ensure the work we do is evidence-based. I am excited to use my research experience to impact people’s lives in the mental health, addiction and disability sectors. I am glad to work within an organisation that strongly values people and wellbeing.  

I have a degree in Biomedical Science from the University of Auckland and a Master’s in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Sydney. 

In my previous role I was responsible for scientific communications and collating research information in the type 1 diabetes field. I’ve also worked as a dietitian in research and corporate health settings.
