Researcher biography

Angus obtained his Bachelors in Biomedical Sciences (majoring in Cell and Molecular Biology) with Distinction at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2019, and has since gone on to complete his Masters of Philosophy (MPhil) in 2022. His MPhil saw him utilise extensive bioinformatic, proteomic, and Mass Spectrometry analysis techniques in order to identify predictive protein biomarkers for the potential monitoring of chronic non-healing wounds. 

Following on from his studies in 2022, Angus worked as a Research Assistant within the Tissue Repair and Translational Physiology group at QUT, where he was tasked with sample collection, processing, and analysis in conjunction with record keeping, chemical stocktakes, and other administrative work. Angus’ field of supervision within this project centred on facilitating proteomic biomarker discovery within human blood, saliva, and sweat collected under different human stress responses (physical and psychological).

Having started at the Queensland Alliance for Environmental Health Sciences (QAEHS) in 2023, Angus’ current work involves the identification and quantification of microplastics within human samples.
