Short biography

Greg achieved his PhD at Monash University in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology where he investigated how small endo-siRNAs influence germline chromosome integrity. Following this, he joined the Department of Developmental Biology at Monash as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow where he investigated how microRNAs influence neurodevelopment. His current research is focused on how the genome maintains chromosomal stability. This involves investigating a combination of mechanisms including small RNA gene regulatory pathways, epigenetics, DNA damage repair mechanisms, and meiotic recombination.
