Research interests

Angelica is a PhD student at the Menzies School of Health Research. She previously worked with two clinical research organizations in Malaysia, one of which was in collaboration with the malaria research group at the Global and Tropical Health division. She then joined the group formally upon being awarded the CDU-MACC scholarship in 2019. Her interests include clinical research and microbiology, particularly microbial pathogenesis and pathophysiology, as well as parasitology. She was conferred an MSc (Research) from Swinburne University of Technology in 2017 for her work on bacterial metabolites and hydrophobic biofilms for in vivo probiotic protection of shrimps against early mortality syndrome in an aquaculture setting. Angelica’s current PhD topic revolves around Plasmodium knowlesi, the etiological agent for increasing incidences of malaria in Sabah, Malaysia. Her project will encompass description of cumulative incidences via molecular detection methods, delineating specific factors to exposure and infection within a high risk cohort, as well as further characterisation of knowlesi malaria pathophysiology.
