After completing my degree in Biochemistry at Imperial College, I came to the School in 1991 to begin working towards my PhD with Prof. Jennie Blackwell. After one year the group moved to Cambridge, where I finished my PhD working on molecular aspects of Leishmania mexicana.

From Cambridge I moved to the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) in Mill Hill to work on Influenza as a Post Doctoral researcher.  After that I worked on mycobacterium tuberculosis jointly at St Georges Hospital and The Eastman Dental Institute, more specifically on how the mycobacteria can effect bone biology.

 

I am currently the Deputy Programme Director for the Msc in Infectious Diseases (by Distance Learning)
