About me

After graduating as a veterinary surgeon (UQ) and undertaking a PhD (UQ), I received a MAppSc (Biotechnology) in Cell and Molecular Biology (QUT). I was awarded a QUT postdoctoral fellowship, before taking a position as Lecturer in Physiology at QUT.  I am leader of the Ghrelin Research Group and my research interests include prostate cancer biology, long non-coding RNAs, the function of ghrelin in disease and breast cancer proteomics. I am a member of the Australian Prostate Cancer Center, Queensland. I currently lecture in physiology in the School of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Health, QUT and I am Deputy Chair of the University Animal Ethics Committee and University Animal Welfare Officer (QUT).
