I am a Peter Doherty NHMRC Early Career Fellow at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI/QUT) and the Translational Research Institute (TRI). My research focus over the last few years has been in the isolation, characterisation, expansion and identification of therapeutic targets in circulating tumour cells in a number of tumour types including head and neck and lung cancers. More recently, my work has expanded into understanding the tumour microenvironment which compliments my work in the liquid biopsy space.

My ultimate goal is to find better therapies for cancer patients.
