Overview

I am a honorary clinical lecturer at the Lydia Becker Institute of Immunology and Inflammation, while undertaking clinical subspecialty training in paediatric immunology and infectious diseases at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. I am interested in the functional and molecular basis of primary immunodeficiency, and how improving our understanding of these conditions can translate to better outcomes for affected children. In addition, I am investigating the ontogeny of innate pulmonary immunity in early life, and how this might predispose infants to severe tuberculosis. My PhD was funded by fellowships from the European Society of Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID) and the Medical Research Council (MRC).
