Biography
Mike grew up in the Seattle area before beginning undergraduate study in 1999 at the University of Washington, where he later graduated with BSc's in biochemistry and economics. During this time, he was also introduced to computational genomics as the initial draft Human Genome was being finished, spending several years doing part-time research in gene finding and protein structure prediction.

He continued studying biochemistry as a graduate student at UCLA but elected to return to genomics when he moved to the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (Cambridge, UK) in 2005. While at Sanger, Mike completed his PhD with Prof Leena Peltonen (Sanger) and Prof Gert-Jan van Ommen (Leiden University) and was heavily involved in the first wave of genome-wide association studies, especially the statistical methods thereof. He also led large-scale efforts for the integrative analysis of molecular systems, identifying a gene co-expression network underlying metabolic traits. In 2010, Mike came to the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne on an NHMRC postdoctoral fellowship to continue pursuing interests in genomics and systems biology. In 2012, he joined the faculty at the University of Melbourne. Outside of research, Mike enjoys playing soccer, brewing beer and hanging out in cafes.
