My research cuts across many areas, but most of my work revolves around immunology, either developing computational models of immune function (computational immunology), or fault-tolerance achieved via bio-inspired engineering with a focus on the immune system (immuno-engineering).

I held a Royal Society-Wolfson Research Merit Award (April 2011 - March 2016) which allowed me to focus on developing my work on computational immunology and self-healing swarm robotic systems.

I was a Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellow (March 2014 - September 2015) which allowed me time to commercialise our work on supporting evidence-based decision making through computational modelling. 

I am currently CEO of a spin-out from our research: SimOmics Ltd.
