Welcome to my home page. I am a Research Fellow in the Precision Medicine Group at the College of Medicine and Public Health, Flinders University.

My research interest is in using innovative modelling and simulation approaches to aid optimal drug development, precision drug use, and regulatory decisions. I use newly available clinical trial data to develop clinical prediction tools or applications that provide personalised likelihoods of expected therapeutic and adverse outcomes to contemporary rheumatoid arthritis and cancer medicines. Such tools allow informed treatment decisions to be made based on patient’s characteristics which may be predictive of efficacy or toxicity.

Our research group is always interested in identifying and working with PhD and Honours students, and have several projects available. Students would need to obtain a scholarship that will cover their own living expenses and tuition fees, but we are more than happy to support qualified students in applying for available funding. Please contact me if you are interested.

Teaching interests

I strongly believe in training students to be future ready by exposing them to relevant skills and offering them high-quality education. I therefore believe knowledge transfer is an essential quality of a successful academic. I have 7 years of university level teaching experience. Throughout my career and postgraduate training, I have been actively involved in teaching undergraduate Pharmacy and Pharm D courses in pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmaceutical sciences at institutions in Australia, Jordan and the USA.
