I am part of a large multi-disciplinary teaching team in the School of Human Life Sciences with partial responsibility for teaching Human Molecular Biology and other units covering aspects of toxicolgy, biochemistry and molecular biology.
With over 40 years of research experience, I was trained in chemistry and biochemistry before focusing on genetic and molecular toxicology and getting a PhD in Biomedical Science from the University of Tennessee and postdoctoral training in molecular pathology at the University of Washington, Seattle. I then worked for 12 years at the Institute of Environmental Medicine, New York University School of Medicine in NY, USA, where I studied the mechanisms of metal-induced carcinogenesis. In 1999 I moved to Australia to work in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at Deakin University and in 2007 I moved to take up a research active position at UTas within the School of Human Life Sciences. As an Associate Professor and Deputy Head of School, I am teaching into molecular biology, biochemistry and environmental health and continuing with my research on arsenic toxicology, environmental health and molecular carcinogenesis.
