Biographical details

I obtained a BMedSci(Hons) and DipInnovMan from the University of New South Wales. I completed a PhD at the Westmead Millennium Institute (Western Clinical School, University of Sydney) in the area of molecular biology and infectious diseases, with a particular focus on human cytomegalovirus latent infection.

Research interests

My current research interests are in the area of blood transfusion and immunology, and the translation of research projects into changed business practices at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. The research conducted at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service aims to improve the donation experience and keep our donors happy and healthy, to explore ways to process blood more efficiently, to identify current and emerging infectious risks, and to investigate how blood products are used so that we can provide the correct product for every patient.
