I have a degree in Biochemistry and a masters in Bioinformatics. Following this I completed a PhD where I modelled the replication of RNA viruses. Previously I’ve researched Epstein-Barr Virus diversity and virus transmission. I’ve also managed the sequencing of thousands of bacteria and hundreds of different viruses from the Public Health England’s National Collections of Type Cultures.
I’m currently researching how the HIV virus interacts with it’s host and the various treatment options. The results of this will inform our understanding of virus transmission, disease progression and ultimately cure.
