Personal profile

Research interests

Current research interests include:

  • The development of novel cancer therapies. This includes the design and synthesis of PARP14 inhibitors and prostate cancer research in collaboration with Dr Luke Henderson (from Deakin University).
  • The analysis of supplements using HPLC. Examples of supplements that have been analysed include sporting supplements and ginger extracts.
  • The development of antibiotics and anti-tubercular compounds. 'Superbugs' are a real thing!

Research Experience:

  • Research project (2006-2007) Synthesis of Carbohydrates. Dr. Darren Grice, Griffith University, Institute for Glycomics, Gold Coast, Australia.
  • Research project (2010) Synthesis of target nitroxide used for clinical trials. Prof Steven Bottle and Dr Kathryn Fairfull-Smith, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia.
  • Research project (2010) Boranic acids as fluorescence sensors. Dr. Todd Houston, Griffith University, Institute for glycomics, Gold Coast, Australia.
  • Postdoctoral research project (2011) IR spectroscopy/electrochemistry of lipid bilayers and redox proteins. Dr. Andreas Erbe, Interface Spectroscopy group, Max-Planck-Institute Germany.
