Research interests

My research interests are broadly around understanding the immunology of infectious diseases with a  translational focus. I am currently working on using new technologies to understand Group A streptococcal biology in individuals with either asymptomatic carriage or pharyngitis. Using samples from infected individuals, I hope to better understand the bacterial and immunological processes which occur in natural infection and disease, to inform vaccine development. I was recently awarded a 2 year Elizabeth Blackwell Institute  Early Career Fellowship to carry out this project, with the support of Professor Adam Finn. 

I also maintain an interest in several other infectious diseases, including a number of important respiratory pathogens. I previously worked on the immunodiagnosis of Tuberculosis infection in Imperial College London (with Prof. Ajit Lalvani), in a large project using samples from patients recruited with suspect active Tuberculosis in the UK. I also worked on signatures of progression risk within those with latent Tuberculosis infection. Whilst at Imperial College I also spent some time on a project to describe the immune responses to the live attenuated influenza vaccine in children. My doctorate was in the field of parasite immunology using mouse models of infection.

I am very interested in better understanding the immunobiology of infectious diseases using clinical studies, in order to develop improved vaccines, diagnostics and treatments.
