I am a Postdoctoral Fellow working in the field of immunogenetics. I use immune receptor sequencing to understand the evolution of antigen-specific responses to different antigens in infection, vaccination and autoimmunity.

My background is in the fields of immunology and infectious diseases. During my PhD, I worked on the development of methods for B-cell receptor sequencing, which I then applied in the context of virus infection and vaccination. My current postdoctoral work focuses on the investigation of antigen reactivity driving chronic inflammation in inflammatory bowel disease. In addition to my employment at the Wellcome Sanger Insitute, I am a Borysiewicz Fellow at the University of Cambridge. As part of this fellowship, I am working on a project inspired by one of the UN sustainable development goals which combines research and global health policy in the area of infectious diseases.

It’s been a year since we deployed our first mobile lab in Sierra Leone. I feel so privileged to have been part of #teamDEPLOY. This time in Makeni truly changed the scientist and the person I want to be. Thanks to @BorysFellows for being the best team I’ve worked with.
