I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the group of Prof. Mark Harris, researching hepatitis C virus. 

I obtained my PhD from the University of Leeds in 2019 where I researched the non-structural proteins of chikungunya virus. Previously, I was a postdoc at the Wellcome Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine (WWIEM) at Queen’s University Belfast, working on respiratory syncytial virus utilising well-differentiated primary airway epithelial cell cultures (2020-2021).
