Personal profile


I completed my PhD at the University of Strathclyde in 2012 studying host-pathogen interactions during Toxoplasma gondii infection, to inform the design and testing of vaccine candidates. I continued as a post-doctoral researcher working in collaboration with the University of Chicago to study the in vivo efficacy of potential therapeutics for T. gondii infection.

In 2015 I joined a new collaborative project between the UoS and the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory. The research goal was to develop a platform technology for targeted delivery and enhanced efficacy of antimicrobials used to treat bio-threat organisms. 

Current research activities

My research interests are focused on better understanding host-pathogen interactions which occur during infection with Toxoplasma gondii


Current teaching activities and interests

I teach on a number of courses including:

Clinical Immunology


Principle and Applications of Immune assays
