I have a BSc (Hons) and PhD from the University of WA. I am a NHMRC Career Development Fellow at the University of Western Australia and Lead the Rare Disease Genetics and Functional Genomics Group at the Harry Perkins Institute. My research focuses on the genetics, disease mechanisms and treatments for severe and early-onset neuromuscular disease. I work closely with clinicians, diagsnosticians, medical scientists and researchers and my research is translated into improved genetic screening for Mendelian disease.
I Chair the EMCR Committee at The Harry Perkins Institute and am Secretary of the National Association of Research Fellows. I was previously on the Executive of the Australian Academy of Science EMCR Forum. I am a passionate advocate for gender equity in STEM, EMCRs and HDR students.
