Patrick was born in Melbourne, Australia. He undertook a Bachelor of Science at The University of Melbourne, co-majoring in Biochemistry and Immunology. He continued in the field of Biochemistry and in 2008 achieved a First Class Honours, for which he obtained a research scholarship to undertake his PhD. Immediately following graduation in 2015, he moved to Sweden, in order to explore the differences in scientific approach and practice. It is here that Pat started his postdoc in the Daley lab, where he studies various aspects of protein synthesis. Outside of the lab, he enjoys the outdoors but especially snow sports such as skiing or snowboarding (although which one depends on his mood, and how willing he is to fall down).
