I am a molecular and computational biologist. Since 2022, I've worked in Prof. Alex Brown's Indigenous Genomics research team at the Telethon Kids Institute and Australian National University. Before this, I was a postdoctoral research fellow (2015-2022) in the Lister Lab at The University of Western Australia.In my work, I dive deep into the intricacies of the epigenome through a modern and integrative approach to genomics and bioinformatics. I seek to unravel the epigenetic basis of cell function and the development and prediction of complex diseases.I am impact-focused and enjoy developing custom analysis frameworks for complex biological questions and data types. I have broad experience in molecular and cell biology, genomics data analysis, bioinformatics, computer programming, medical research and data privacy.See my published work at Google Scholar


I'm always keen to engage in conversation and collaboration. Please reach out at
