Personal profile

Research interests

I obtained my PhD from Swinburne University (Melbourne) researching inhibitors for glutathione-S-transfer ases as effective adjuncts to chemotherapy. I have gained experience in the area of insect cell culture/Baculovirus technology.  On relocation to Queensland, I held a teaching position at the University of Queensland before joining Bond University in 2007.

My reasearh interests span a wide variety of areas including developing cancer therapeutics, anti-adhesive agents to combat bacterial infection to anayltical analysis of ginger supplements and pre-workout supplements, I've expertise in the use of computationally-based strategies for drug design which provde a deeper understanding of the factors influencing protein-ligand interactions and the broader structure/activity relationship. To date my grant income is in excess of $151,000.

I have had a number of Honours, Masters and PhD students complete their degress and, currently supervise 3 PhD students.

I have a number of national and international collaborations/associations Meijo University, Nagoya, Kapan, Griffith University, Gold Coast, Centre for Urology Research at Bond University and the Molecular Dynamics Group, School of Chemistry, University of Queensland.

Statement for HDR students

I have a number of either lab-based, as well as computer-based research projects, which span a broad range of topics from

  • analysis of biological samples for key metabolites and supplements using HPLC,
  • design of peptides as anti-bacterial agents,
  • design of compounds that prevent bacterial adhesion,
  • Determination of the Biological Variation in Vitamin D

Students will have the opportunity to gain valuable and translatable research skills, which will enhance their future prospects, as well as the potential for publications.
