Personal profile


I am an Infectious Diseases Physician and Researcher at the Alfred Hospital and Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. I care for patients with infectious complications following solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant. I have a Masters in Bioinformatics and a passionate research interest in applying novel bioinformatics approaches to improving our diagnosis and treatment of antimicrobial resistance. My research aims to translate the promise of novel developments in whole-genome sequencing, machine learning and healthcare analytics into better outcomes for patients.
