Flow Cytometry Scientist and Co-Manager
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 scientific and research based. During my 6 years as a research scientist, I used flow cytometry as one of my main techniques. Now being part of a shared resource lab, I am finding ways to best train our students and staff in 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, and sample acquisition. After attending CYTO 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.
