Emmanuel Kaye BuildingRoyal Brompton Campus





I am a Clinical Senior Lecturer at NHLI.

I completed my medical training at Oxford University Medical School in 2005, and hold an intercalated BSc in Social Anthropology from the University of Cambridge, and a Masters in Public Health from the Harvard School of Public Health.

I work as a Respiratory Consultant with a special interest in respiratory infection and tuberculosis at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. 

My research interest lies in global respiratory health, with a specific focus on TB-associated respiratory disease in Africa. My work uses both qualitative and quantitative methods, and I have held research funding from Wellcome, MRC and NIHR.
