Flow Cytometry Scientist and Co-Manager AMREP Flow Cytometry Core Facility, Burnet Institute, Vic, Australia
Education BSc (Pathology and Immunology) University of Melbourne Honors 1st class (A platelet tetraspanin superfamily member, CD151, is required for regulation of thrombus growth and stability in vivo)
Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration My Scientific interests have developed over time from being purely medical research based during my years of working as a research scientist, to now being part of a shared resource lab finding ways to best train students and staff best practices in Flow Cytometry. I have a passion for R and D experiments which can assist in illustrating to our users the reasons behind basic flow cytometry concepts including correct sample preparation, instrumentation set up, sample acquisition and panel design. After attending my first CYTO in 2017 I look forward to being involved in the SRL Accreditation Program which I believe will be a great step towards setting a minimum standard benchmark to assist in improving Flow Cytometry on a global level, as well as collaborating with fellow colleagues from around the world.
