Research Biography

My 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, I worked in the Plant Nutrition group at Flinders University. There I 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, I joined the Flinders International Centre for Point of Care Testing as a Scientist in the Northern Territory Point-of-Care Testing Program. I coordinate a network of point-of-care testing devices that measure white blood cell counts in less than 5 minutes. These devices are located in 20 remote primary health centres across the Top End of the Northern Territory.
