Louise, you were not just my supervisor throughout my Honours and PhD; you were my guiding light, my mentor, and my pillar of support during my studies in Australia. Your impact on my academic journey is immeasurable, and without you, I wouldn't have achieved what I have today. I will always cherish our memories together. Rest in peace, Louise. You will be deeply missed.
