Lecturer, UNSW

I am a Lecturer at the University of New South Wales Sydney. My primary research activity is the use of microscopic plants (algae) to produce biofuels, animal feed and sustainable chemicals, as well as to treat wastewater.

I am also project manager on the Nuisance and Harmful Algae Science-Practice Partnership with Melbourne Water. The aim of this project is to predict and control algal blooms in order to secure pristine waterways and a clean and safe water supply.

Previously, I was a Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow and deputy team leader of the Algal Biosystems and Biotechnology Group at the University of Technology Sydney.

I have a multidisciplinary scientific background with a BSc in Physics, an MSc in Sustainable Energy and a PhD in Biochemical Engineering, all from Imperial College London.

In my spare time I like to read, travel and play sports.
