People often ask me what it is I do for a job. I would describe myself as a ‘slashie’ as I am involved in a number of different pursuits in my life. My two main loves however are my research and my hockey. I am a research scientist at the University of Western Australia where I work on the design, synthesis and application of nanomaterials for the treatment of disease and injury. When I am not in the lab I am usually on a hockey pitch somewhere in Australia or abroad training and playing for the Australian Men’s Hockey Team. Looking back on the relatively short journey to where I am now it is interesting how each of these pursuits have intertwined and for the most part worked in synergy with one another.

Sydney University pre-season training is ramping up for the 2012 season; Chris Pelow takes a regulation bang to the foot. A week later, the dull throbbing has yet to subside.

The 24-year-old Dubliner asked a club mate, Damo Cunningham, a podiatrist, to have a look.

“He spotted something straight away and got me an MRI for the next day.” Boom.

“That afternoon, they called me back and wanted me to see an orthopaedic surgeon. This is kind of escalating.” Boom.

“I saw the surgeon, explained a little of what had happened. Then, straight out, ‘there’s a lump in your foot; I don’t want to startle you, but it could be cancer’.

Love Actually

Wednesday, 10 January 2018 1:12:54 PM Australia/Sydney



It is a common occurrence that people ask me, “Why are you still involved in the game?” “Don’t you feel burned out?” “Is there really more to learn or do?” These questions have arisen on numerous occasions during my years as a hockey enthusiast, from age 15 to 35, yet my answer has always been the same - because I love it.



My childhood experience with sports defines the term organic. I never played to earn a college scholarship or to make someone else happy. I didn’t travel to tournaments every weekend with ungodly amounts of pressure on my shoulders. I even quit the U.S. Women's National Team to try something new, only to return 2 years later. Maybe I was oblivious to reality and pressure or, quite simply, I grew up in a different generation. But, one fact always remained the same - I played field hockey because it was fun and when I wasn’t having fun, I always took a break.
