Personal profile

Research Biography

I have been fascinated by molecular biology since first undertaking a Biotechnology degree at Flinders University. I subsequently completed a PhD at University of Adelaide and then conducted post-doctoral studies at Cancer Research UK’s London Research Institute, widely considered to be one of the premier basic cancer research institutes in the world. As a recipient of a prestigious European Molecular Biology Organization long-term fellowship, I studied epigenetic mechanisms underlying transcriptional deregulation in cancer and developed expertise in contemporary molecular, biochemical and omic techniques.

Upon returning to Adelaide in 2009, I subsequently received Young Investigator Awards from the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) and the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the latter the only awarded to an Australian-based researcher (of >280 total since 2007). In 2015 I established an independent lab group at the University of Adelaide, which I transferred to Flinders University in 2019. My research is focused on two broad themes: a) elucidating the changes that occur to the androgen receptor signaling axis during prostate cancer progression, and using this information to identify novel opportunities for AR-based and AR-independent therapies; b) investigating the role of non-coding RNAs in prostate cancer metastasis and their potential as biomarkers of disease. I regularly publish my research in top-tier journals, including recent papers in Cancer ResearchEuropean UrolScience Translational Medicine, Journal of the National Cancer InstituteEMBO JournalOncogene, and Nucleic Acids Research.
