I am a veterinarian with a strong interest in research. During my PhD I studied fungal contaminants of food and feed with focus on Fusarium spp., and then the role of peroxisomes in health and disease in in vivo models. Since joining the laboratory of Prof. Gordon Brown in 2017 my research has focused on studying the role of pattern recognition receptors, CLRs, in immunity.
