Technical Lead at Kapiche (www.kapiche.com). Software development, text analytics, machine learning, medical imaging PhD candidate
Mark is Education and Cultural Change Coordinator for the Office of Research Ethics and Integrity at QUT. His PhD was about the philosophy of David Hume. He designs face-to-face and online training courses, and promotes research integrity. He spends a lot of time thinking about how to explain complex concepts more clearly.
Co-founder of genomiQa and Manager of the Genome Informatics group at QIMR Berghofer MRI with 25 years as bioinformatician. He has worked as part of NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience, 1000 Genomes Project, as well as co-lead Queensland and Australia Genomic Health Alliance. John's publications have been cited over 18,000 times.
Currently I’m the sequencing manager at QLD Brain Institute, as well as technical support for UQ Genomics. My background is in applying technology to genomics, especially new and emerging technologies, and I’ve work in everything from neuroscience to forensic genetics! As well as being passionate about technology and genomics, I also am working toward enabling more people to engage with science. I’m a firm believer that everyone is a scientist, we all have a curiousity about the world and I’d like to see more people reach their potential and learn about all the awesome things science has to offer.

We have three games going throughout Resbaz
Colouring in Competition
Everyone loves a good colouring in competition. Come pick up your name badge at the front desk, decorate it to your hearts content and show it off!
You may have noticed that your name badge has a sticker. Find three other people with the same sticker, come get your riddle from the front desk and solve away!
Augment my Treasure Hunt
You may see some furry critters around the conference. 'Catch' them with your phone to find the secret letters, unscramble them and present your word to the front desk to be in the draw!
