Biography
My BSc studies was performed at the University of Glasgow and my BSc Honours and PhD degrees from the University of Western Australia where I specialised in immunity to viral infections.

Key research
My main research has been in the pathogenesis of viral infections which has included studies of flaviviruses, lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, parainfluenza viruses, cytomegalovirus and hepatitis C virus.
