Personal profile


I was awarded my PhD degree in 2005 in Molecular Microbiology at The University of Sydney. Since 2011, I have been working as a Research Fellow in Surgical Infection Research Group in Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Macquarie University. Together with A/Prof. Vickery and Prof. Deva, I have worked on various bacterial biofilm related projects, including: microbiome of bacterial biofilms in medical implants and devices: breast implants, dental implants, orthopaedic implants and endoscope tubes; microbiome of biofilms in the healthcare environment, chronic wounds and cystic fibrosis lung.

During my research career, I have achieved over 50 refereed publications and built up a strong background in bacterial biofilm research fields, with expertise in both bacterial biofilm and molecular microbiology study. My technique expertise includes molecular quantification, identification and genotyping of bacteria, quantitative real-time PCR, fluorescent in situ hybridisation, next generation sequencing data analysis to study microbiome (bacterial community) associated with medical implants, medical devices, surgical equipment, hospital environment, chronic wounds and cystic fibrosis lung.
