I am a speciality registrar in Infectious Diseases and General (Internal) Medicine and clinical research fellow. My major research focus is reducing the high mortality in hospital in-patients in high HIV, high TB burden settings in sub-Saharan Africa. My PhD focussed on urine-based diagnostics and screening for TB in HIV-positive patients in Malawi and South Africa, and explored associations between urine-diagnostic tests and increased mortality.
