Research Interests I have interests in the areas of infection and tumour immunology, autoimmune disease and ageing. My research at the University of Hull focuses on understanding how T cells differentiate and maintain their function long-term. In particular, intercellular communication in between antigen presenting cells and T cells in humans shapes up the fate of T cells and this can affect the way we respond to pathogens and allergens, potentially making different individuals more or less susceptible to disease. Molecular pathways of intercellular communication between immune cells relevant in infection, critical inflammatory conditions and cancer are currently under investigation.
Teaching and Learning I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I take part in teaching and assessment activities in the Biomedical Science Subject Group at the University of Hull. My teaching interests mostly include Immunology and Cellular and Molecular Biology. I take part in lectures, tutorials and one-to-one teaching activities.

I supervised a number of students in the lab in my past career, including many successful researchers and scientists who are now progressing well in their career. If you are a student interested in coming to the lab, please contact me at
