Research Interests:

Characterisation of how an individuals collection of Lifestyle factors alters their body’s biochemistry and immune activity driving it toward either health or disease.  In particular the influence of this constellation of lifestyle factors on natural killer (NK) cell activity, redox balance (i.e. oxidative stress) and NAD+ metabolism and how these influence cellular degeneration, particularly in the brain and central nervous system

Broad Research Areas:
Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Inflammation

Society Memberships & Professional Activities:
Australian Society for Medical Research (ASMR), Australian Neuroscience society (ANS), Australian Society of Clinical & Experimental Pharmacology and Toxicology, Nutrition Society of Australia (NSA), Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine

Specific Research Keywords:
Neuropharmacology, Neurodegeneration, Central nervous system disease injury and repair, Cell Metabolism, Neuropharmacology
