Research Biography

Emma's Honours and PhD research focused on deciphering the biochemical mechanisms by which a plant disease resistance protein is activated to initiate cellular plant disease prevention responses. Post-PhD, Emma worked in the Plant Nutrition group at Flinders University where she focused on identifying genes, or genetic regions, that could be used as markers in plant breeding programs that aimed to increase the concentration of zinc in staple food crops, such as wheat and rice. 

In 2020, Emma joined the Flinders University International Centre for Point-of-Care Testing. She has worked as a Scientist and Point-of-Care Coordinator in the Northern Territory Point-of-Care Testing Program and the Syphilis Point-of-Care Testing Programs. In these roles, Emma managed and coordinated staff education, training and quality managment for large networks of point-of-care testing devices located within primary care health services across Australia.

Emma is currently working on an MRFF-funded project entitled ' Equitable access to full blood evaluation testing at the point-of-care in remote primary health' as the Project/Clinical Trial Coordinator and Research Officer. This project aims to improve equity of access to health care and outcomes for patients who present to remote primary care health centres with suspected sepsis.
