Biography

Biography 

 

My research focuses on the epidemiology of invasive and antimicrobial-resistant nontyphoidal Salmonella infections. I have conducted research in Australia and Vietnam where I investigated population structure of nontyphoidal Salmonella infections and sources of antimicrobial resistance in humans using One Health approach. I have also worked on the global burden of invasive nontyphoidal Salmonella disease estimates as part of the Global Burden of Disease 2017 Study.

 

I completed a medical degree in the Czech Republic and have undertaken clinical and research internships in France, Spain, USA, Thailand, and Vietnam. At ANU, I tutor medical students and I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. In 2018, I have been selected in Homeward Bound 4, a 12-month leadership program for 100 women in STEMM culminating in a three-week voyage to Antarctica. I am studying my PhD through the award of an Endeavour Postgraduate scholarship.
