I am a cardiologist and researcher with specialty interests in sports medicine, heart failure and exercise testing. My background includes clinical training in internal medicine and cardiology through the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. I have completed an advance cardiac imaging fellowship (Monash Heart) and a post doctoral fellowship in exercise physiology (Stanford University). I have a clinical interest cardiovascular health in those wanting to be active or who regularly exercise (athletes and non-athletes). My current research projects are aimed at defining inflammasome/metabolic pathways with exercise and optimizing the use of demographic data to predict exercise performance in healthy individuals and those with heart failure.

A key component of ME/CFS is fatigue in conjunction with post-exertional malaise. ME/CFS patients frequently have a marked decrement in physical status and cognitive function that peaks 24 - 48 hours after a controlled, brief exercise test. Furthermore, reports from several groups have linked ME/CFS to abnormalities in levels of cytokines and chemokines in blood and cerebrospinal fluid and to reduced NK cell activity and elevated numbers of regulatory T cells. The objective of this project is to utilize methods and insights recently established by the Milieu Intérieur Consortium to obtain a more accurate representation of immunological function in ME/CFS.
