I have an extensive academic background in human genomics, population genetics, precision medicine and genome analytics. I joined AstraZeneca in August 2017 from the University of Melbourne, Australia, where I was a Senior Research Fellow and Group Leader in Computational Genomics within the Department of Medicine. I have held positions as a Research Scholar at the Institute for Genomic Medicine, Columbia University (USA) in 2015, and as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Human Genome Variation, Duke University (USA) from 2012-2014. My role as Vice-president and Head of Genome Analytics for the Centre for Genomics Research (CGR) involves using my experience to design and coordinate the quantitative genomic analyses of the CGR and the broader Genomics Initiative. I was awarded a PhD in Bioinformatics and Biostatistics from the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry & Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne in 2011, and over my academic career I have made important contributions to quantitative genomic analyses and the science of variant interpretation. I have also secured prestigious funding from numerous international organisations and regularly publish my work in highly regarded journals.
