TB, BCG, B Cells, Immunology
Obtained PhD in Melbourne, Australia, studying the T cell response to HSV infection in mice. In 2005, following several postdocotoral studies in the UK and USA on T cell memory and migration, I took a lectureship at the University of Bristol where I continued my research on T and B cell migration. In 2009 I took a post as Lecturer in Immunology at the LSHTM, permanently seconded to Uganda. I now live in Entebbe, Uganda and am an Assistant Professor at the LSHTM, as well as a Senior Immunologist at the MRC Unit here, and an Honorary Associate Professor at the Makerere University College of Health Sciences.
My current research interests revolve around the B cell response to tuberculosis in adolescents and adults, and the infant immune response to BCG.
