I collaborate widely within Townsville, Brisbane, and internationally via the CCP SyneRBI, and encourage anyone interested in collaboration to reach out.

Other Interests


I am passionate about scientific software, and am a contributor to projects including STIR and SIRF.


I am interested in helping ensure my peers enjoy a safe and equitable work environment. To this end, I am currently serving as the chair of the H&B EMCR Committee and as the H&B Representative on the ATSIP HSE Committee. I'd encourage anyone with similar interests to reach out and see how we can work together.
