About me

My scientific training began at the National Heart and Lung Institute UK, working with Profs Adcock, Barnes and Lim, where I mastered the isolation and in-vitro culture of several types of human lung cells. I then had further training in both molecular biology  (University of Leeds) and then virology at Prof Sebastian Johnston’s laboratory at Imperial College, UK before commencing my PhD at The University of Sydney supervised by Prof Judith Black. 

I am now head of the Respiratory Molecular Pathogenesis group with laboratory facilities located at both UTS and the Woolcock Institute . The work from my group is recognised to be amongst the best in the world, evidenced by selection for presentation at symposia at both national and large international conferences as well as resulting in prestigious publications.
