Originally from Indonesia, Malinda graduated from the School of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield. She is now a research fellow in Professor Ben J. Boyd’s group at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Her broad interests are in global health and nutrition for paediatrics, focusing on the development and understanding of milk and milk-based formulations for oral delivery of poorly water-soluble drugs (which has been funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation) and recently has expanded to the nutritional aspects of these milk-based systems. Malinda has also been involved in organising international meetings and is currently assistant editor for the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science.
