Personal profile


Following my PhD, I undertook postdoctoral studies with John Trowsdale in Cambridge. I also spent time at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. I returned to Perth in 2003 as a UWA postdoctoral Fellow and subsequently took up a Lectureship within the School of Surgery and Pathology. I have focussed on undergradaute teaching and curriculum devlopment in the BSc Patholgoy major. In 2009 I was promoted to Associate Professor within the new School of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and moved to take over running of the LotteryWest State Biomedical Facility Genomics based at Royal Perth Hospital.
