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.
I lead the Core Bacteriology and Core Virology module practical teaching for the MSc in Medical Microbiology and support practical classes for clinical bacteriology, clinical virology and mycology modules. I am also the deputy module organiser for the Clinical Virology, Clinical Bacteriology 1& 2 and DL Bacterial Infections modules.
My main research focus is AMR Neisseria gonorrhoea and particularly the role of the pharynx inthe transmission of gonorrhoea and development of AMR
