  • Honorary Researcher, Modernising Medical Microbiology
  • Fellow in Clinical Medicine, Oriel College

I work as a Consultant in Infection at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. I work across a number of infection services, including inpatient general ID, as well as the Oxford Bone Infection Unit and general medicine. 

I'm a researcher in the Modernising Medical Microbiology group at NDM Oxford, working as part of BRC with a focus on integrating pathogen genomic information to our understanding of Infection. This includes diagnostics (identifying the pathogens causing infection), transmission (understanding the spread of pathogens particularly in the healthcare environment) and pathogenesis (understanding why some microbes cause disease). 

I am also a Fellow in Clinical Medicine at Oriel College, where I am responsible for teaching 4th-6th year medical students.
