I am a full-time NIHR funded DPhil student of Kellogg College and I joined the department of Primary Care Health Sciences in January 2015.
My project focus is to estimate the burden of common gastrointestinal infections and complications which arise as a result of remediable factors. Under the guidance of Dr. Thomas Fanshawe, Prof. Noel McCarthy and Prof. Rafael Perera-Salazar, I will explore the clinical, and methodological aspects of this field.
The project falls under the “tracking disease in the population: developing novel methods for disease surveillance & outbreak investigation” theme of the newly formed NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Gastrointestinal Infections based at University of Liverpool. Other partner organisations include Public Health England, Institute of Food Research and University of East Anglia.
Prior to joining the department I was and still is an Epidemiologist with the Gastrointestinal, Emerging and Zoonotic Infections department of Public Health England where the focus of my role was in the surveillance and outbreak investigation of Salmonella.
I have a BSc. (Hons) in Microbiology and MSc. in Clinical Microbiology both obtained from the University of Nottingham.
