Lecturer in Medicine



Academic Background

Bsc (Hons) MBBS MRes MAcadMEd

I am an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellow and currently completing my DPhil with the Modernising Medical Microbiology group here in Oxford. My research interests include combining large healthcare datasets with whole genome sequencing data to understand the epidemiology of pathogenic bacteria. Recently this has included work on Gram-negative bloodstream infections in adults and children (e.g. E. coli/Klebsiella pneumoniae) and non-tuberculosis mycobacteria (particularly Mycobacterium abscessus). I enjoy teaching (and learning from!) the final year clinical students at Jesus.
