I coordinated an EU FP7 funded study called HARP (HPV in Africa Research Partnership) which was a multi-centre evaluation study of cervical cancer screening strategies, including HPV DNA based tests, for women living with HIV in Africa. 

I am currently based at the Catalan Institute of Oncology evaluating novel screening methods for HPV related ano-genital lesions, primarily among people living with HIV.  I am also involved in research aiming to summarise evidence on immunogenicity and efficacy against HPV infection and clinical outcomes of different HPV vaccine schedules.
