I completed my PhD exploring the underlying genetic susceptibility to obesity and metabolic disorders in the Norfolk Island population isolate. My main areas of research are Bioinformatics and Computational Genetics. I am currently working at ESR (Institute of Environmental Science and Research) as a Senior Scientist in Bioinformatics and Data Science. My work involves the creation of methods to deal with, and analyse, large genomic data sets, including the incorporation of multiple layers of both phenotypic and genomic data. I work on a range of complex human disorders, including; obesity and type-2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, migraine, ovarian cancer and asthma.
