Research Summary

My research aim is to provide the evidence base to enable people at risk of mycobacterial disease, including TB and related conditions such as HIV infection, to access and obtain highest-quality care. My work concerns the interaction between the human host, the microbe and the environment in which they find themselves. It focuses on three main areas: 1. operational & economic health services research (including management of the hard to reach and hard to treat, service evaluation, & modelling of infection), 2. diagnostics (both microbiology and immune-based), 3. treatment and treatment responses in HIV negative and co-infected individuals (including therapy-related paradoxical reactions).
