Associate Professor, RMIT University

I am a analytical chemist interested in the fate and behaviour of micro-pollutants in the environment and their potential to cause human health effects, (particularly as assessed by metabolomics approaches). Currently an Associate Professor at RMIT University I started my research career with a PhD at Imperial College London. I then worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Biochemistry Department of the University of Cambridge then held a lectureship in School of Engineering and Computing Sciences at the University of Durham (UK) before moving to Australia in 2012. I am president of the Australia and New Zealand Metabolomics Network, secretary for the Australian and New Zealand Society for Magnetic Resonance, deputy-director of the RMIT Water Effective Technologies and Tools (WETT) and Environmental Sustainability and Remediation (EnSuRe) research centres, and a member of the Australian Academy of Science National Committee for Chemistry.
