I joined the Host-Pathogen Interactions lab in 2022 after completing my MSc in Antimicrobial Resistance from the University of Sheffield. Prior to this, I attained an BSc in Biochemistry and Microbiology, also from the University of Sheffield. My research interests are fundamentally founded in how pathogens are able to evade immune responses and develop resistance to drug treatments.
Within the lab, I am responsible for the maintenance and differentiation of various induced-pluripotent stem cell lines as part of the Lung-on-chip project. I also assume key roles in the management and organisation of the lab.
Outside of the lab, I play a lot of sport including football, tennis and squash. This year I have also taken up climbing with members from the lab!
