The University of Auckland

I completed my Bachelor of science at the University of Auckland specialising in biomedical sciences. I majored in neuroscience but i have exposure to other specialisations including : immunology, endocrinology and reproductive biology.



Currently I am working on a summer project looking into the development of cranial nerves comparising different models ( zebra fish, chick embryo) and paying special attention to the origin of motoneurons
