I carried out a BSc in Infectious Diseases at the University of East London and complemented this by an Msc in Clinical Microbiology at Queen Mary University of London and a postgraduate diploma in Sexual Health at Glasgow Caledonian.

Now, I am a trained and HCPC registered Clinical Scientist in Microbiology, with a specialist interest in Sexually Transmitted Infections. To complement my interest I have been involved in various research studies including HSV, syphilis and gonorrhoea. A particular interest is antimicrobial resistance in STIs and specifically Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
