Research interests

During my PhD I used Drosophila melanogaster as a model organism to study the response of the organism’s innate immune cells (termed hemocytes) to tissue damage. I am now working on a project to further our understanding of hemocytes in the waxmoth Galleria mellonella by investigating how they arise during embryonic development, and how they respond to Candida albicans infection.
