With a background in fundamental immunology combined with expertise in biochemical engineering, I am an interdisciplinary researcher focussed on solving current and future healthcare challenges using an engineering science approach that combines a range of fields from biology, biochemistry, chemistry and physics. I work at the interface between academic technology discovery and industrial development and have experience of both fundamental research and the commercialisation of new technology.

The two main challenges I currently work on are the development of affordable microfluidic technology for clinical diagnostics and microbiology, and the engineering science of complex biologic therapeutics such as vaccines.
