School of Biotech & Biomolecular Science

I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the lab of SHARP Professor of RNA Biology John Mattick. My research focuses on investigating the function of ultra-conserved elements in animal genomes, especially in placental mammals. I also investigate the characteristics and roles of lncRNAs, with a particular interest in central nervous system (CNS) lncRNAs. I completed my PhD(Anatomy) at the University of Newcastle under supervisor Associate Professor Doug Smith investigating age-related changes in the CNS.
