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:

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



Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
