We've got a funded PhD available! Come and work with us using proteomics to understand how viruses interact with the immune system, and how this can be used to create better vaccines. Apply here

I'm a Reader within the 'Viral Immunology' group, and also the 'Cytomegalovirus and Adenovirus Virology' group, within the division of Infection & Immunity. My research covers the biology, immunology and diagnosis of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) as well as the development of recombinant adenovirus vectors. More details can be seen at the Viral Immunology page, and the Cytomegalovirus and Adenovirus Virology page. We also work closely with the Oncolytic Adenovirus Virology group.

You can also find publication information on ResearcherIDResearchgate and Google Scholar, and a verified record of journal reviews on Publons.
