Personal profile


I am a post-doctoral researcher within the Centre for Respiratory Health, School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Western Australia and is based in the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. Since 2011, I manage the Stem Cell Unit (Institute for Respiratory Health) with A/Prof Yuben Moodley which includes supervising research students (PhD, Masters and Honours) and staff. I also have an appointment as a Research Officer in the Cell and Tissue Therapies WA in Royal Perth Hospital since 2017. I completed my PhD in 2011 in the area of HIV immunology with a thesis that addressed the development of immune restoration disease and immune recovery in HIV patients on antiretroviral therapy.

I have a strong track record in basic science research in the area of cellular and molecular immunology, respiratory and stem cell research. My current research focus is on the characterization of biomarkers and mechanisms of IPF and COPD pathogenesis while seeking new strategies through cellular (e.g. MSC) and immune-based therapies to treat lung disease and the associated chronic inflammation. I am also currently managing the national blood biobank (DNA, RNA, plasma, serum and PBMC) linked to the Australian IPF Registry. I have extensive experience in processing of human samples (e.g. isolation of plasma and PBMC), cell cultures, development of immunology-based assays (e.g. flow cytometry and ELISA) and molecular biology assays (e.g. qPCR and RNAseq).
