Personal profile


In 2015 I finished my PhD at UQ creating a novel genotyping--by-sequencing method called skimGBS. I then moved to UWA to work with the Edwards group on plant breeding using computational methods.

Roles and responsibilities

I'm a postdoctoral researcher and Forrest Fellow in the group of Dave Edwards - I run my own research, help PhD students with their research, and look after the group's infrastructure.

I also run the Hacky Hour, every Tuesday at the Hackett Cafe at 2pm and online on Zoom, where we talk code and data and help people with code and data problems:

Funding overview

UWA Research Collaboration Award, 'Microbe mediated alternative Nitrogen nutrition in Australian seagrasses', $29,950

Industrial relevance

Our group collaborates extensively with international breeding companies such as BASF and Intergrain.


Plant genomics, plant pangenomics, computer-assisted breeding programs, Brassica, wheat, legumes, seagrasses
