Research

Research interests

My primary research interest is in the field of medical mycology. As a clinical research fellow at the MRC Medical Mycology Centre, undertaking a doctor of medicine under the supervision of Professor Adilia Warris and Professor Angela Shore, I am currently investigating the role of Aspergillus infection in cystic fibrosis lung disease in children and adolescents. I am part of the University of Exeter team planning and setting up the cASPerCF trial, one of the investigator-led studies in the connect4children (C4C) network funded by the EU, chief investigator Professor Adilia Warris. The aim of the trial is to describe the epidemiology of Aspergillus infections in children and young people with cystic fibrosis, and of validating a posaconazole dosing algorithm to treat Aspergillus infections. I have previously undertaken research in chronic lung disease of prematurity, HIV in children, paediatric allergy, and paediatric antimicrobial and antifungal stewardship.
