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!
