I joined the University of Sheffield in 2018 as an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer and Honorary SpR in Infectious Diseases and Microbiology.

I graduated from the University of Sheffield Medical School in 2005 and I have worked in Sheffield, New Zealand, Oxford and Nottingham since then.

Research interests

My research interests are in vaccinology and malaria infection. I am particularly interested in looking at the innate responses to vaccination and how these are affected by changes in vaccine regimen or adjuvant.
