    Graduate profile

    As an Aboriginal woman with a passion for veterinary science research, Layla Schrieber chose to do her Master of Science in Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney on dogs and streptococci in an Aboriginal Australian community. “One of my cousins forwarded an email from the Faculty of Veterinary Science looking for an Indigenous PhD student. I met with Dr Robert Dixon, who ended up becoming my supervisor, and since I was pregnant at the time we decided on a Masters project as it would not be as stressful as the PhD,” said Layla.
