Research Interests

Research Focus 

As leader of the SAHMRI Bioinformatics Core, my group develops computational tools and workflows to enable researchers to analyse large genomics datasets, as well as working with SAHMRI research groups as a Bioinformatics consultant. Our group’s current research interests include developing methods for clinical cancer sequencing (in collaboration with the Leukaemia research group) and investigating epigenetic and structural gene regulation using multi-omic datasets, with a primary focus on reproductive systems such as the human placenta and early adaptive immune network.
