Amanakdeep Kaur completed her Masters studies in chemistry, with a University medal from VIT University, India in 2012. Thereafter, she took up a research internship at ENSCCF, France, where she worked towards understanding the behaviour and biocompatibility of transition metal-doped calcium phosphate ceramics. Amandeep has recently completed her PhD from the University of Sydney with Dr Elizabeth New, during which she was awarded with the World Scholars Scholarship. Her PhD research involved the development of reversible fluorescent redox sensors for understanding the role of oxidative stress in biological systems.

Her current interests are applying fluorescence imaging tools in combination with FRET based sensors to understand biological processes focusing on cancer cell biology.
