Personal profile

Biography

Born in Perth, Western Australia. BSc (Hons) in Geology and PhD in Geophysics from The University of Western Australia. After working in the mineral exploration industry between 1996 and 2002, I did a career change translating into the field of Biophysics after completing a Grad. Dip (Physics) in 2003. Since 2004 I have worked in the School of Physics where I am currently a Research Associate Professor. In 2010 I was appointed the Course Co-ordinator of the MSc (Medical Physics) course.

Future research

Measuring liver fibrosis and fat using MRI. Finding magnetoreceptors in bees.

Research

Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to non-invasively assess human diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, liver fibrosis and steatosis, and iron overload in the brain, heart, kidneys and liver. The research program is currently divided into in-vivo studies, covering a range of patients groups, and post-mortem work.

Understanding the magnetic resonance characteristics of magnetic nanoparticles to assist the development of new contrast agents for MRI. The aim is to develop new materials that are more efficient than current agents and that can potentially be used to target specific cells in the body.

Approaches to loading and imaging cells with magnetic particles to enable cell tracking using MRI.
