Associate Professor Karena Waller

Karena Waller contributes to the teaching and learning of microbiology and immunology to second and third year Bachelor of Biomedicine and Science students. She joined the Department of Microbiology’s academic teaching staff in 2010 after completing 15 years in local and international malaria research.

The School and Biomedical Precinct is a really wonderful place to study and work as it offers an incredible wealth of research expertise in the biomedical sciences, including proximity to and input from some of the most internationally renowned parasite researchers.

Passionate about innovation in teaching and learning and student experience and engagement, Karena was the recipient of the 2017 ASM David White Excellence In Teaching Award.

“My work at the University is fundamentally energised and motivated by student learning, achievement and experience – seeing students enjoy their time at the University, studying, achieving and growing as individuals, is a wonderful reward.”
