Jeff is the Deputy Director at the Australian BioCommons, and also leads the Community Engagement team at the Australian BioCommons, who collectively aim to ensure that appropriate infrastructure is established at a national level to support Australian life research communities, and that researchers are upskilled to use this infrastructure to support their research. Jeff has a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Queensland, and started his career conducting research in the fields of cancer, molecular genetics and embryo development. He has since held many community facing roles in the UK and Australia, all focussed on developing computational infrastructure to support health and life science research - at the UK Medical Research Council (MRC), Australian National Data Service (ANDS), Intersect Australia, University of Queensland's Research Computing Centre, Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF), and the EMBL-Australia Bioinformatics Resource (EMBL-ABR).
