Personal profile

Biography

After some years working as a community pharmacist, I came to Macquarie University to do a PhD in Pharmacology. I finished my PhD in 2015, where I researched the effect of single nucleotide polymorphisms and phosphomutation of the mu-opioid receptor.

After concluding my PhD, I started working for Prof. Mark Connor and the Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics. The project focus in the creation of platforms for the cell based elucidation of potential cannabinoid mechanisms of action in epilepsies.

Now I am engaged in teaching pharmacology, research and professional practice, in addition to continue researching molecular pharmacology of cannabinoids and opioids.
