I originally came to Sheffield in 2003 for medical school. I stayed in South Yorkshire for my junior doctor jobs and then started specialist training in Infectious Diseases and Microbiology at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. I went to Oxford University in 2015 to work on typhoid human challenge models and then got my PhD, based in Malawi studying typhoid epidemiology and vaccination in Africa and Asia. I have worked across Africa and Asia including the West Africa Ebola Virus Outbreak in 2014.

I am currently an academic clinical lecturer in the department of infection and immunity interested in measuring the vaccine preventable burden of infectious diseases in at-risk populations and using vaccines to prevent antimicrobial resistance.
