About me

After completing a Bachelor of Science (Hons) Biotechnology at the Amity Institute of Biotechnology, Delhi, India in 2005, Ash moved to Australia where she successfully completed a Master in Biomedical Science at the Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Australia in 2008.

From  June 2008 until June2009 Ash worked as a Technical Assistant in Serology in the Department of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases at Pathwest Laboratories Medicine in Perth.

In 2012, she succesfully completed a Master of Medical Research at Griffith University, Gold Coast, Australia for her research project entitled: “Role of Micro-RNA Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (miR-SNPs) in Breast Cancer Susceptibility”.

Ash worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Melbourne- St Vincent’s Institute, Melbourne from  April 2013 until December 2013 before enrolling at QUT as a PhD Candidate  in February 2014. She is pursuing her PhD research project, entitled:“Targeting EMT to Modulate Prostate Cancer Cell Chemoresistance”, under the supervision of Dr Brett Hollier and Dr Elizabeth Williams of the APCRC-Q.
