IMG_4017Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD Fellow in Global Health Research

I am interested in characterising the causes of infection susceptibility in children in developing countries, with a view to improving child health through targeted interventions. I am particularly interested in the relationship between the immune systems of mothers and their children, especially in the context of maternal HIV infection.

My PhD focuses on characterising the immunology of HIV-exposed uninfected children who have more infectious morbidity and poorer growth than HIV-unexposed children.
