I am specialist Endocrinologist (Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians) with a PhD in ovarian molecular biology. I am an NHMRC Principal Research Fellow and Chair of Women’s Health at Monash University Melbourne. I primarily undertake research to progress the understanding of the roles of oestrogens and androgens in non-reproductive health including: breast cancer, cardiovascular function, obesity, cognitive function, mood, sexual function and musculoskeletal health. I am a consultant Endocrinologist at Cabrini Medical Centre and the Alfred Hospital Melbourne.
