Oliver will finish his Bachelor of Philosophy {Honours} – Science, this year at the Australian National University, where he is completing his Honours project at the John Curtin School of Medical Research. He grew up in Sydney but moved to Canberra for his studies, which involved a myriad of research projects spanning biology, chemistry, public health, and medical physics. In one such project, Oliver worked under the supervision of Associate Professor Alexey Glushenkov, to investigate the properties of dual-carbon batteries. Oliver is passionate about research, and has been involved with the Australasian Council for Undergraduate Research for the last three years, most recently as the Vice President of the student committee. He hopes to pursue a career as a clinician scientist, and is looking forward to meeting other aspiring researchers in Dublin.
