I am a breast cancer research scientist with an excellent track record of competitive grant funding, publications and international recognition in my field. My research interests centre around defining the biology that underlies breast cancer risk. This includes childbearing which protects against breast cancer and mammographic density, which increases risk. With previous training in both endocrinology and oncology I am also interested in defining the relationship between hormonal exposure and breast cancer risk.
I lead a team of researchers at the Peter Mac Callum Cancer centre under the mentorship of Professor Robin Anderson. I also hold an adjunct lectureship position at Monash University. I have, and am currently supervising honours and postgraduate students enrolled through Universities in Melbourne, and Monash University.
