I am a speciality registrar in Infectious Diseases and General (Internal) Medicine and clinical research fellow. My major research focus is the management of and reducing the high mortality associated with HIV-associated TB. I was recently based at the Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Clinical Research Programme in Blantyre, Malawi, running a clinical trial of urine-based screening for TB in HIV-positive patients admitted to hospital. I am completeing my PhD, which investigates the association between urine-diagnostic tests and increased mortality in patients with HIV and TB co-infection.
