staff portrait


I am interested in developing ways to facilitate scientific research by providing researchers with access to transformative technologies and empowering education and training. I manage GetGenome, an initiative with the mission of building local capacity to utilise genomics, an important but often inaccessible discipline within life science research. Through GetGenome, I aim to accelerate the research of early-career scientists, increase the impact of their research and minimise the barriers they face for the betterment of society as a whole.
