Personal profile

Research interests

I have a wide range of interests that overlap

  • diagnosis in infection
  • genetics (both host and pathogen)
  • genetic epidemiology as a window to answer therapeutic questions
  • randomised trials in acute infection
  • randomised trial development including pragmatic trials
  • antimicrobial resistance
  • pathogensis of severe and critical infection
  • iron metabolism

Research interests

I am interested in infection. My main interests are outcomes from severe infection, differentiating phenotypes of infection, and molecular approaches to diagnosis of infection.


I am currently an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow at North Bristol NHS Trust, and am due to start a Wellcome GW4 PhD in 2020, looking at host genomic and transcriptomic responses in infection.


My other interest is in drawing causal inference from observational data.
