Research

Originally from Wellington, I completed my PhD at the University of Sydney investigating the relationship between inflammation and atherosclerosis, then spent 6 months at the University of Copenhagen before returning to New Zealand. My research project focuses on identifying the inflammatory triggers of gout using both genetic (genotyping, copy number, GWAS analysis etc) and mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Since people with gout also experience a higher incidence of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease risk, it is hoped these results will, by extension, also be applicable to these diseases. My research interests include investigating the triggers of inflammatory diseases that disproportionately affect Maori, including gout, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
