I apply data science and genomics to enable personalised healthcare
I am a data scientist with more than twenty years of experience across life science, drug discovery and health. I am currently Director of the consulting branch of QCIF, a non-for-profit public company providing customised data analytics solutions to life science and clinical researchers. Prior to its merger with QCIF, I was the CEO of QFAB Bioinformatics, a joint venture between UQ, QUT and Griffith University. During eight years,
I have provided the technical, operational and management leadership to create core competencies and provide services in data science. I spent six years with Bio-Layer, the biotech business now known as Anteo Diagnostics. I designed and built a screening platform to develop new diagnostics products. Integral to this platform was a full hardware and software system for the collection, management, search and tracking of high-throughput experimental data.
I have also worked with Synt:em, a French biopharma company, where I led a team of bioinformaticians and statisticians to develop new algorithms that enabled fast and novel analysis of high dimensional datasets. I hold a PhD in computational science from the University of Bordeaux-France (1993) and an MBA from UQ (2012).
