City Coordinator

I am a medical researcher developing novel treatments to fight antibiotic-resistant superbugs at The University of Adelaide. Being the region coordinator in South Australia is an exciting task and I am thrilled to engage with peers and the public, demystifying science at a pub near you.

I use DNA extracted from long-dead people and animals as a time machine to reconstruct the past genetic history of humans and other large mammals. I have an accent in all languages I speak, I significantly increase the average age of my soccer team, and I feel better on the road than on the couch

Retired, but not from life. Strongly believe that knowledge and understanding are advanced as much in the front bar of a pub as in the laboratory, but I'm happy to be convinced otherwise...over a pint of beer.

I think science is great – which is probably unsurprising for a volunteer in this venture! – and my job is enabling great science to happen. I spend slightly too much time with computers, but more than make up for it with laughter, beer, music, friends, and much more.
