BSc (Hons) Sussex PhD LaTrobe

Senior Research Scientist

I manage the Institute’s Genomics Hub. The Hub provides the Institute’s research teams with direct access to advanced technologies for genome sequencing. This is being used by many researchers at the Institute to understand how variations in genome sequence contribute to disease. 

Research interest

The aim of my research is to develop new techniques that expand the current applications in next generation sequencing technology platforms housed in the Genomics Hub.

I am particularly interested in developing methods to sequence DNA from hard-to-access samples, and in turn, improving the information obtained so that results can be generated from the raw data.
