Senior Technical Officer
My role facilitates research capability for a wide range of small molecule mass spectrometry analysis and characterisation within the Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre.
As part of this my research interests stretch across many diverse areas of Science but predominantly focus on metabolomic profiling and stable isotope geochemistry. I also support many different forms of chromatography, enabling GC, HPLC, AF4 and GPC analysis within MWAC.
My interests involve development of analytical methods to improve microbial metabolic profiling, including the analysis of soil bacteria and fungal metabolites involved in bio-remediation by GC/MS.
Stable Isotope Geochemistry
My interests involve the analysis of inorganic carbonate samples by IRMS. Examples of samples analysed include speleothems and coral, for paleoclimatology studies, and bone or teeth for paleontological studies.
