Sienna joined the Centre as a part-time Research Assistant in July 2018. She graduated with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science awarded by Deakin University in 2016, and went on to complete a Bachelor of Health and Medical Science (Hons) in 2017. Sienna completed her Honours project at Deakin University in conjunction with the National Centre for Farmer Health. Her Honours thesis assessed the effect that monitoring acetylcholinesterase, a neurotransmitter required for the normal functioning of the nervous system, had on farmers living in south-west Victoria. She focused on the influence this had on behaviours regarding use of agrichemicals and personal protective equipment. She had the privilege of presenting her research at the Western Alliance Annual Symposium in September 2017.
Sienna is supporting Jennifer Halliday, Dr Christel Hendrieckx and Prof Jane Speight with various tasks related to the JDRF/ARC-funded Adult Hybrid Closed Loop Study.
