I use a novel combination of experimental, mathematical and bioinformatic techniques to investigate cell-mediated immunity. My aim is to develop a predictive mathematical model of the human in vivo CD8+ T cell response in order to prevent and alleviate viral infection.

My initial training was in theoretical physics. I have a BSc in Physics (1st class hons. University College London), an MSc in Mathematics (distinction, Imperial College London) and a PhD in Theoretical Particle Physics (title: "Non Commutative Geometry", University of Durham). I then worked as a mathematical modeller for the UK government for 2 years before crossing disciplines to Mathematical Immunology. I held a Wellcome Trust Fellowship at Imperial College London and then a Leverhulme Trust Fellowship at the University of Oxford before returning to Imperial as a lecturer.
