Personal profile


My BSc studies was performed at the University of Glasgow and my BSc Honours and PhD degrees from the University of Western Australia where I specialised in immunity to viral infections. I continued studies on viral immunity at the John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU, and then at St Jude Children's Hospital, Memphis, TN. before returning to UWA.

Roles and responsibilities

I oversee the research facilities at the UWA Medical Research Laboratories based in the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research at the Fiona Stanley Hospital campus.

Future research

Development of methods to control progressive disease and control persisitent viral infections such as cytomegalovirus and hepatitis C virus.


My main research has been in the pathogenesis of viral infections which has included studies of flaviviruses, lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, parainfluenza viruses, cytomegalovirus and hepatitis C virus.
