Research Associate


I completed a Bachelor of Biomedical Science at the University of Melbourne, majoring in Neuroscience. My first research project looked at the requirement for neuronal activity in the development of the enteric nervous system, with Heather Young and Richard Anderson.

After graduating, I moved to Roberto Mayor's lab at UCL to study role of cell-cell contact during neural crest migration, in particular the interaction between polarity proteins and the cytoskeleton.

I've since moved back towards neuroscience, to Jon Clarke's lab at KCL. I'm looking at the development of neuronal polarity and how neurones determine the site of axon extension.
