I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Ovarian and Reproductive Cancer group - Robinson Research Institute, under the supervision of Prof. Darryl Russell.
My overall research interests lie in the molecular mechanisms of transcription regulation in highly specialised cellular contexts that allow for specific functions. Specifically, my research focuses on the action of various transcription factors, including steroid receptors, enhancer elements and other chromatin modifications that are important for ovarian granulosa cell specialisation during ovulation and luteinisation. I use a combination of molecular techniques and high-throughput sequencing methodologies in my research in order to generate large scale cistromic and transcriptomic data.
