I am a Research Fellow at the University of Auckland's Liggins Institute. My research focuses on the application of advanced analytical techniques, particularly chromatography and mass spectrometry, to questions of metabolism, physiology, chemical ecology and biochemistry. My particular focus is chemical ecology: the study of how chemical compounds mediate interactions between organisms and their environment.
