I gained degrees in Physiological Sciences and Medicine at Pembroke College, Oxford. After general medical training, I did my PhD at the MRC Tuberculosis and Related Infections Unit at the Hammersmith Hospital in monoclonal antibodies, diagnostics and pathogenesis of TB. I completed higher medical training at the London Chest Hospital and UCLH. Having been a consultant physician at the Homerton University Hospital and senior lecturer at QMUL from 1995, I was appointed an honorary professor in 2010. I have been attached to the Department of Immunology and Infection as an honororay professor since 2017.
I teach on the European Advanced Course in Clinical Tuberculosis and at the TBnet Academy, a course designed to encourage clinical interactions with basic scientists in TB research. I teach courses on TB for the European Respiratory Society and at the British Thoracic Society conferences. I am also involved in the London Advanced TB Course.
My research areas include the management of MDR-TB, cough and transmission of TB, diagnostic tests for TB disaese and latent tuberculosis infection, and immune responses.
