Postdoctoral Research Fellow, School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy, University of Newcastle

I am a geneticist who is passionate about using genetics to better understand human disease and find new treatments. I work using large genetic datasets to identify genetic risk factors that could be targeted by a new drug or an existing drug. I completed my PhD in genetics in late 2021 at The University of Newcastle and am now working on a project as a postdoctoral researcher which seeks to better understand how genetics could match patients to treatments more effectively. I have worked across a variety of disorders, however, I have a particular passion for mental health given that many mental health challenges are poorly treated by existing drugs.
