I am a consultant clinical geneticist and clinician scientist with a research focus on human genetics. In 2016 I was appointed to the position of inaugural Pamela and Lorenzo Galli Chair in Developmental Medicine, with a specific research and clinical focus on the causes of intellectual and physical disability.

I completed RACP training in paediatrics and clinical genetics in 2000 before undertaking PhD studies in chromosome biology completed in 2004. Since 2005 I have worked as a consultant clinical geneticist at Victorian Clinical Genetics Services (VCGS) and as a Research Group leader at Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI). From 2009 to 2016 I was Director of Victorian Clinical Genetics Services.
