Personal profile

Research Biography

I am the Catherine Marie Enright Kelly research fellow, leading the South Australian Breath Analysis Research (SABAR) laboratory within the Department of Surgery at Flinders University. My team is developing and validating breath analysis tools that can be translated into point of care devices, offering new opportunities for early detection of cancer and inflammatory disease that will lead to improved clinical management.

Research Interests

My research team is focussed on developing and validating new, transformational breath analysis tools that will offer new opportunities for early detection of disease and improved clinical management. My research group collaborates with local and international experts, creating a valuable transdisciplinary network that will facilitate translational outcomes.

Breath analytics represents an exciting, cutting edge technology that will provide new capabilities in the detection and monitoring of disease. Breath analytics already have wide-spread clinical use for detection of Helicobacter Pylori, measurement of gastric emptying, assessment of sugar intolerance, and more recently, prediction of heart transplant rejection.

We have a number of exciting research projects for prospective PhD and Honours students, focussed on developing new breath analysis tools for the non-invasive detection of cancer, altered nutrition and inflammatory diseases. Please contact me by email if you would like to discuss these opportunities.
