Personal profile


I received a BSc(Hons) (1984) from Monash University and PhD (1991) from the University of Melbourne. I have been employed by The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Monash University since September 2002. My research employs structural biology and protein chemistry to understand critical events in autoimmunity and inflammatory diseases. The structural information is complemented by a set of skills that I have acquired over many years in molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics and cellular immunology, thus enabling a full analysis of T cell activation upon engagement with auto-antigen bound to MHC-II.
