Dhairya commenced with The Baird Institute in September having recently completed his Bachelor of Biomedical Science at The University of Queensland. He has a strong interest in computer science and his goal has always been to use his computational skills in a healthcare setting. Throughout his undergraduate degree, Dhairya was extensively involved in research, working as a research assistant at the Queensland Brain Institute in the Computational, Systems and Developmental Neuroscience Laboratory. His passion for cardiothoracic research was strengthened while working at the University of Queensland Thoracic Research Centre, assisting in data management for the International Lung Screen Trial.
Dhairya says: “I was extremely fortunate to have been offered a job as a data research assistant at The Baird Institute. I am very excited to contribute to cardiothoracic surgical research and assist in ensuring the quality, integrity, and confidentiality of the research data and databases. I am also looking forward to utilising my programming skills to make research workflow processes more efficient.”
The recruitment of Dhairya is another important investment in the team which supports the high-impact research conducted by our researchers. We really appreciate the generous support of our donors who have made this additional investment possible.
