I have PhD in Bioinformatics with background in Biotechnology and Cellular and Molecular Biology. Currently, I am a member of the Bioinformatics group within University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research (UMCCR) in Melbourne.

My primary role is to develop bioinformatics pipelines for analysing RNA-seq data and integrating in-house data with publicly available genome-scale data from large cohorts of patients, such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), to facilitate classification of pancreatic cancer patients into established molecular taxonomies.

During my PhD project I have designed a bioinformatics framework for analysing and integrating cancer data generated across different types of microarray and NGS platforms.
