Jessica Privett

University of Sydney
Class of 2008

Background: I was born and grew up in Sydney, Australia. I entered a Bachelor of Veterinary Science at University of Sydney after finishing school and am now in my final year. I have recently had the opportunity to participate in a research project studying hereditary sensory neuropathy in English Springer Spaniels.

Interests: I love to travel, and would do so at any opportune moment. I like to do a bit of everything - but especially enjoy music, dancing, art, film, eating out, going to the beach and spending time with friends.

Career Goal: After a grounding in private practice, I would like to investigate avenues in research or industry. I am interested in infectious disease and would like to undertake a PhD in this general area.
