Research Summary

I am an academic trainee in respiratory medicine, and am interested in translational aspects of tuberculosis (TB) research - both in the UK and globally. I have previously led research projects based at Desmond Tutu HIV Centre, Cape Town (under the supervision of the late Prof Stephen Lawn), and at Public Health England as part of the ‘UK TB-HIV Research, Epidemiology & Development’ (UK-THREAD) group, using national level HIV and TB data. 

I am now completing an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship that aims to develop new tools to refine the risk stratification of individuals with latent TB infection for progression to TB disease, using a combination of epidemiological and host transcriptomic methods. This includes an individual participant data meta-analysis of epidemiological studies, and a prospective cohort study investigating a novel host transcriptional biomarker, and is jointly supervised by Prof Ibrahim Abubakar, Dr Mahdad Noursadeghi and Dr Marc Lipman at UCL.
