Statement for HDR students

  • My prime interest is pharmacology, with a good knowledge of both pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles.
  • My PhD, laboratory-based, was on melatonin and serotonin in circadian rhythms and I maintain a keen interest in this field. Indeed, my interest in melatonin has expanded to encompass therapeutic applications.
  • My ten years spent in postdoctoral studies at Cardiff University encompassed techniques across multiple experimental domain methodologies, including behavioural place preference conditioning and neurochemical microdialysis.
  • Being the Chair of the Queensland Mental Health Pharmacists Group, I have a strong interest in improving psychotropic medication use in patients with mental health concerns.
  • I have been involved with the supervision of MD student projects since their inception and my past academic experience in Cardiff allowed fruitful involvement with multiple PhD projects covering the neurobiology of Alzheimer’s disease, and mechanisms of drug dependence. 

My recent research interests now extend to pharmacovigilance and consumer interests in medication use, collaborating with Treasure McGuire.
