About me

My research focuses on modulation of the growth hormone and appetite-stimulating hormone ghrelin and its receptor the growth hormone secretagogue receptor. After receiving my PhD from QUT in 2006 I worked at the Mater Medical Research Institute for 7 years and was supported by a NHMRC training fellowship and a QLD government Smart State Fellowship. In 2013 I returned to QUT to join the APCRC-Q at TRI.
