Personal profile

Research interests

My main research interests lie in the use of disease diagnostics in primary care, infectious disease, and antimicrobial resistance. Any research that aims to improve healthcare and the health of the wider society is of interest to me.



I obtained a first-class honours BSc in Biological and Medicinal Chemistry at the University of the West of England in 2005 and then went on to complete a PhD in Breath analysis for the early recognition of hepatic encephalopathy at the same university. I have spent much of my early research career in analytical chemistry, studying volatile metabolites from the human body to see if they can act as markers of disease for non-invasive disease diagnostics. I continued to work in this field while working as a research associate at the University of Liverpool and Imperial College London. I then made a transition into applied healthcare research when I joined the University of Bristol in October 2018 as a Senior Research Associate in Primary Care for management of the Rapid Test Study. This was the first study to evaluate highly novel microbiological point-of-care testing in UK primary care for patients presenting to their GP with a respiratory tract infection. My current role involves supporting and developing NIHR research grants related to the diagnosis, treatment and management of infections in primary care with a view to improving primary care antimicrobial stewardship.
