Senior Lecturer, Lydia Becker Institute of Immunology and Inflammation, Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health
I am an immunologist with a specific interest in host pathogen interactions. My lab is using infection models to understand how the immune interacts with different pathogens.
We have particular interest in gut helminth infections which may ultimately protect the host through immune regulation.
Public engagement highlights
I am very active in taking immunology and my research to the general public. Recent events include Bi-Annual Family Day, The Royal Institution, London 2019 (Contagious Critters: Stories to make your skin crawl and your stomach churn) and Outbreak! Einstein’s Garden, Green Man Festival 2019.
