Faculty of Sciences

I am internationally recognised as a key opinion leader in medical mycology and for my leadership in teaching and for my research discoveries. I was the a Chief Medical Scientist and Head of the Mycology Unit at SA Pathology, Women's and Children's Hospital, Adelaide for 33 years, retiring from full-time work in November 2011. I remain an Affiliate Associate Professor in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Adelaide. I graduated from La Trobe University Botany Department with BSc Hons, MSc and PhD in mycology. I am an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia, a Fellow and past President of the Australian Society for Microbiology, an Honorary Member and past President of the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology, an Associate Member of the Australasian College of Dermatologists and an Honorary Life Member of the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases. My current research interests include the epidemiology and ecology of medically important fungi, especially Cryptococcus, fungal taxonomy and antifungal susceptibility testing. I also remain actively involved in the teaching of medical mycology and I jointly author Mycology Online a key mycological website. I am a recipient of the ASM David White Teaching Award, the RCPA Outstanding Teaching Award and the Australasian College of Tropical Medicine Ashdown Medal. In 2014, I was the inaugural recipient of the ASM Lyn Gilbert Award for contributions to clinical mycology.
