Interests:

Bioinformatics, genomics, molecular parasitology, systems biology, structural genomics, biodefense

Background:

B.Sc.(Hons.), and Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Queensland.  25 years experience in molecular parasitology, genomics and bioinformatics.

Research:

1. Structural genomics (high throughput protein structure determination) of biodefense and emerging infectious disease organisms — funding through NIAID contract
2. RNAP II-mediated transcription in Leishmania – funded, renewal pending
3. Genome-wide and bioinformatics approaches to studying differentiation between insect and mammalian lifecycle stages of Leishmania — minimal funding
4. Drug and diagnostic development for African trypanosomes and Leishmania — funded through collaborations
5. Annotation and curation of trypanosomatid sequence and functional genomics databases — currently funded

Informatics projects include development of sequence, functional genomics and process management databases, analytical software tools and web-based interfaces for analysis of sequence, mRNA expression and proteomics data.
