After obtaining a B.Sc. in Immunology at the University of Glasgow, I undertook a Ph.D at the same institute, working with Dr. Allan Mowat, on a project analyzing a novel class of oral vaccine vectors.
My initial post-doctoral training was with Profs. Rolf Zinkernagel and Hans Hengartner at the University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland, where I developed an interest in the dual role of CD4+ T cell subsets in protection and pathology during different viral infections.
Thereafter, I returned to the UK to work with Dr. Fiona Powrie at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford, studying the regulation of the host immune responses in the intestine. I developed a novel model of inflammatory bowel disease, based on infection with the intestinal bacterium Helicobacter hepaticus.
I was subsequently awarded a Wellcome Trust Career Development Fellowship that allowed me to develop a small research group to extend our studies on host-pathogen interactions in the gut. In 2008 I took up the post of Lecturer in Experimental Pathology at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford.
I also teach pathology, microbiology and immunology to undergraduate medical students as part of my role as Tutor for Medicine at Oriel College.
