BSc(Hons)(Biochemistry/Microbiology), University of Sydney
PhD(Mass Spectrometry), University of Sydney
Role & Interests
My role facilitates research from diverse disciplines within MWAC. My research focuses on the advancement of analytical techniques fostering accurate and sensitive measurement of peptides and proteins within the context of mass spectrometry based analysis of the proteome. Im interested in improving detection of low mass, endogenous proteins and peptides and translating this into tangible methods to deepen understanding of biological processes. My research focuses on a variety of medical diseases and biochemistries, as well as all techniques relating to proteomic and metabolomic analysis, and quantitation.
I have expertise in the translation of discovery research for clinical utility; experience in the application of next generation life science ‘-omics’ technologies; partnerships, collaborations, project management, licensing and commercialisation. Collaborating groups range from national and international universities as well as medical institutes.
Recent work has led to two patents. This application is the culmination of many years of collaborative research and has resulted in the successful development of new technology in association with an Australian Biotech company and publications describing the enrichment of low mass proteins. This work was then validated by biological application to IBD.
