Personal profile

Research interests

My reasearh interests are focused around the study of biomolecular interactions. These include developing cancer therapeutics, natural products to treat diseases and design of anti-adhesive agents to combat bacterial infection. Much of this research utilises rational drug design approaches & molecular modelling techniques. In addition I have a number of research projects which utilise anayltical instrumentation to quantify & identify components in biological, plant or supplement samples such as the analysis of ginger supplements and pre-workout supplements, Recently my research is expanding to include analysis of gut microbiome and DNA sequencing to understand the impact of changes in gut microflora and disease.

My PhD (Swinburne University, Melbourne) focussed on designing GST inhibitors as effective adjuncts to chemotherapy.

I have successfully supervised numerous Honours, Masters and PhD studentsh to completion.

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.
