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 in the group of Dave Edwards - I run my own research, help PhD students with their research,

I also run the Hacky Hour, every Friday at the Hackett Hall Cafe at 10am, where we talk code and data and help people with code and data problems: http://twitter.com/hackyhouruwa

I also am a (co-)Head of a EMBL-ABR Node

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 Bayer CropScience and Intergrain.


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