Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I have more than 10 years post-doctoral experience in academia, mainly in genomics and bioinformatics. I have expertise in analysing genomic data of a diverse range of bovine species such as cattle, water buffalo and gaur, which has resulted more than 50 research publications, including multiple papers in Nature Communications and Nature. I have edited 2 books, authored 2 book chapters and has an international patent. One of my Nature Communications papers described a high-quality water buffalo reference genome that was the most contiguous mammalian reference genome at the time of publication. This paper has received substantial online attention and was featured as a news feed item by the Roslin Institute, a world leader in animal research, and by Pacific Biosciences, a key company innovating in the field of long-read sequencing. I have created the first indicine cattle (Brahman) reference genome and played a key role in the creation of more cattle genomes through my affiliation with the Bovine Pangenome Consortium. Please get in touch with me if you wish to pursue advanced studies in bioinformatics.

I am currently a Bioinformatics Data Scientist at Davies Research Centre, University of Adelaide. My research interests are in the areas of next generation sequencing (NGS) technology, genome assembly, gene annotation, molecular evolution, transcriptomics, comparative genomics and metagenomics. The species I have worked on include fly, worm, human, primate, bacteria, water buffalo and cattle. I have authored/co-authored research articles at internationally recognized, peer-reviewed journals and I have presented my work at numerous international conferences. I am a co-author of two patents related to the important discovery and genomic analyses of a probiotic bacteria. I have also written a practical handbook on NGS and regularly contributing to a bioinformatics website (https://bioinformaticshome.com).
