Personal profile


I have an adjunct role at the Marshall Centre, which complements the work I undertake at a UWA spin out company.

My focus is the diagnosis and monitoring of common gut disorders. I am also interested in exploring and documenting the lived experience of people with functional gut disorders.

We are currently developing a digital diagnostic test for the common gut disorder, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).The approach combines a symptom survey with a machine learning approach.

My own background is in the evolution and ecology of insect parasites and pathogens. I completed a Natural Sciences undergraduate degree and then a PhD at the University of Cambridge, followed by five years of post-doctoral research. I have built on my biology and research background with training in project management, good clinical practice, trial design and research commercialisation to gain the skillset needed for my current role.

Project Management


The Noisy Guts Project:
Our aim is to develop an acoustic belt that records gut noises over time so doctors can accurately screen, diagnose and monitor gut disorders and diseases. We have achieved proof of concept, and are now working with product developers to refine our belt, prior to further clinical and market validation studies.
